Guarani-Kaiowa Indigenous People, Mid-west Brazil. Native community expelled from its traditional land by cattlemen camps beside a road. Guyraroká village, Caarapó city, Mato Grosso do Sul State. The Guarani-Kaiowa had no contact with the European settlers before the late 1800s. Today their land is stolen by loggers and miners, and FUNAI, which is supposed to help indigenous peoples in Brazil, did little to help the Guarani. The Guarani are forced to leave their land and seek work on plantations, where they work as underpaid labourers. The Guarani of Mato Grosso do Sul are desperately campaigning to protect their land which is crucial for their survival.
