The Wider Image: Brazil's indigenous rights hinge on one tribe's legal battle
Indigenous Xokleng people pray for victory of their cause at a Supreme Court, during an evangelical church service in a church in Xokleng Laklano indigenous land, Jose Boiteux, Santa Catarina state, Brazil, August 15, 2021. Xokleng people of southern Brazil await a Supreme Court ruling that could restore territory they lost decades ago. The bulk of their fertile lands were sold by the state to tobacco farmers in the 1950s. Now the Xokleng pray that Brazilian courts will fulfill a dying shaman's prophecy that they would one day win their lands back. On Wednesday, the top court in Brasilia will decide whether the Santa Catarina state government has applied an overly narrow interpretation of indigenous rights by only recognizing tribal lands occupied by native communities at the time Brazil's constitution was ratified in 1988.
