Cacique Karai: Guarani Tribe


Mixed Media Fine Art Print

Year: 2016


One of South America’s oldest tribes is being wiped out by land owners who pay mercenaries to assassinate its leaders and force them off their ancestral land. More than 400,000 Guarani Indians lived in sprawling communities throughout South America when European first made contact in the 16th century. Only 51,000 remain in Brazil today. Farmers have evicted them from the land their ancestors have lived on for more than 500 years – so they can turn it into soya, sugar cane and cattle farms.
