AP | Thousands of indigenous Brazilians danced, sang and performed traditional rituals using maracas and smoke pipes during a march Friday to protest the pro-business agenda of far-right President Jair Bolsonaro.
The march, attended by native leaders from over 300 ethnicities across Brazil, is part of a three-day annual event known as the Free Land Encampment.
“We are not afraid, our motto is ‘People united will never be defeated,’” said Marizete de Souza, regional coordinator of the Macuxi people. “Let Bolsonaro’s government come because he won’t be able to do what he wants with our indigenous lands in Brazil. Because we are warriors.”
