‘I am the messenger of the forest, with all his knowledge and his wits. This is the time of a revolution in this country. We were massacred over 500 years ago, but we still resist. We have life, we have the power, we will.’ – Ash Ashninka, Brazilian Activist


Aldeia Maracanã, previously Rio’s Indigenous Museum, for a time housed a community of activists from over a dozen indigenous Amazonian tribes. The building is destined to be demolished as part of preparations for next year’s World Cup to make way for a parking lot for the nearby Maracana football stadium; the activists hoped to save the building, which dates back to 1862. Brazilian police evicted the residents early on March 22, 2013, after a standoff that resulted in numerous arrests and the deployment of teargas.
