For 500 years, Brazil’s Indigenous Tupinamba people have fought for their land -- but the threats they face now could finally overwhelm them.
On top of out-of-control mining and slash-and-burn agriculture on their ancestral lands, now a mega-logging company wants to clear-cut thousands of acres of Amazon rainforest to make a quick buck.
There's only one way the Tupinamba can stop this -- if they can file a legal claim to their land with the federal government.
That means they'll be traveling across their territory, painstakingly marking the borders of their land, kilometer by kilometer -- the only way they can ensure their land has a chance at being protected.
This campaign is run in partnership with the Society for Threatened Peoples
