The Wider Image: Brazil's indigenous rights hinge on one tribe's legal battle
Vanda Kamlem, 87, sits surrounded by her grandchildren at her house in Xokleng Laklano Indigenous Land in Jose Boiteux, Santa Catarina state, Brazil, August 15, 2021. "We cannot plant food living in this hole. They want to get rid of us. They don't like us," said Vanda. A former midwife, Vanda remembers the days when she gathered pine nuts from the abundant Araucaria pines, known as monkey-puzzle trees. Now, the forests have been cut down and fish have become scarce as the rivers turned cloudy, she said. REUTERS/Amanda Perobelli SEARCH "INDIGENOUS COURT" FOR THIS STORY.
