Brazilian civilsociety, based in Rio Branco, state capital of Acre, were
founded in 1979 during the period of struggle for Brazilian democ-
racy and in times when indigenous peoples were hardly recognized
or not noticed at all. Since then it has worked to support the people
in claiming and exercising their rights. The organization’s mission is to
