The Wider Image: Brazil's indigenous rights hinge on one tribe's legal battle
Joao Pate, 78, a former 'cacique' or chief, poses for a photograph in Xokleng Laklano indigenous land, Jose Boiteux, Santa Catarina state, Brazil, August 20, 2021. The Xokleng were cleared off their traditional hunting grounds over a century ago to make room for European settlers, mostly Germans fleeing economic and political turmoil. "Before they killed us with guns, now they kill us with the stroke of a pen," said Pate. REUTERS/Amanda Perobelli SEARCH "INDIGENOUS COURT" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
