On the image appears lucienne shayla which is a relative of our living in the USA. Was / is through her that we take / we have contact with the struggle of nations Sioux, Lakota, Dakota, of all indigenous peoples meeting in standing rock Sioux. Now we are also in contact with Michael Jaguar who made the track wielded by the warrior in the photo.
Lucienne has his ancestry in tupy tupinambá and people. We talked a lot since our first contact. What else do we admire about her is the deep spirituality and indigenous warrior. Your Ancestry has touched on more strongly with the fight at standing rock sioux that we fully support. She decided she is physically with our relatives in their fight and for there followed.
Knowing of your brave trip to standing rock, we agreed to send a message of support that is above all ancient and spiritual. Message from our enchanted, ancestry and relatives of here (Indian territory of olivença tupinambá – Islanders / Bahia.). At the end of the manifesto of support has the list of relatives with whom we can talk and who agreed to express your support.
Note: we can’t chat with other relatives, Chiefs and leaders before sending the expressions of support. This is why this event is of some of the indigenous people of this our territory identified with their names originating in at the end of the manifesto.
I went to the post office of Islanders twice this week trying to also send a spear, maraca and pipe in the sense of lucienne offer to our brothers. Twice I’ve been busy, being threatened by contempt. They claimed that it was improper and constituted as “guns”. somehow hit: they are spiritual weapons of our ancestry and delighted.
However, we can send by here the message that follows below, as well as the message that follows the track made by Jaguar and Lucienne leads in their walk of a struggle.
Our Enchanted and ancestry were with her in this difficult and dangerous trip because the us government and its armed forces threaten those who resist arrest, and assaulting our relatives of standing rock Sioux and all those who, like lucienne, try to join.

The participants of the debate will have space to present the actions taken by the institutions that represent and should enter into commitments about what can be done in the short, medium and long term to meet in full the recommendations of the United Nations.
Released in September, during the 33rd meeting of the UN Human Rights Council, the report brought disturbing conclusions about the current situation of the indigenous peoples in Brazil. The document points out that these people are more vulnerable now than at any other time since the Constitution in 1988.
The work was a result of the mission to Brazil of the Special Rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples, Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, who was in the country in March this year to make a diagnosis of the indigenous situation and monitor the development of recommendations made by the UN in 2009, through its predecessor, James Anaya. During the mission, Victoria visited villages, communities, public institutions and bodies working in the theme.
Recommendations- On the basis of the comments made during the Mission in the country, the Special Rapporteur suggested a series of recommendations to the Brazilian Government, as the adoption of urgent measures to tackle the violence and discrimination against indigenous peoples; the strengthening of public institutions as the Funai; the training of public authorities, including high authorities of the Executive power and judges of first degree, considering its inappropriate application of doctrines that deny rights.
The UN also recommended that the State increase efforts on demarcation and protection of lands; allocate resources to improve access to justice; ensure meaningful participation and consultation, free, informed and good faith of indigenous peoples with respect to large or striking development projects and respect indigenous protocols for consultation and consent with respect to development issues; and ensure, in a participatory way, impact assessments and compensation for the damage caused.

28 October 2016
Several farmers and settlers are invading the territory of the Uru Eu Wau Wau, a tribe recently contacted, with the support of local politicians. The incursion is being described in the region as “the worst invasion in decades” that could exterminate uncontacted indigenous who live nearby.
The Indians Uru Eu Wau Wau are known as the “Royal Hawk” because they use large feathers of the bird to make arrows and headdresses. They call their neighbors Jururei insulated, which means “brave.”
We know very little about the isolated tribes, but we know that entire populations are being wiped out by the genocidal violence of outsiders who steal their land and resources, and by diseases such as influenza and measles, to which they have no resistance. The Uru Eu Wau Wau were decimated after the first contact in the 80.
The Rondônia State Government operates a scheme of colonization, near the territory of the tribe. Settlers are now invading the territory, although part of it being the National Park ‘ New Pacaás “and three uncontacted indigenous groups living in the interior. Farmers and local politicians are encouraging a new wave of invasions.
Aerial images show large portions of the territory of the tribe being burned by settlers opening the land. In addition to home for many indigenous peoples, the region also has pine trees only, as well as Amazon unique landscapes of waterfalls, caves and plateaus. Endangered species like the lutrine opossum, the giant Armadillo and the Alagoas curassow depend on these environments to survive.
Members of the tribe wrote to the Federal Police in Rondonia on August 8, but the authorities have yet to act. In the letter, the Indians said: “we are very worried that the invasions are nearby villages and endangering the lives of women, children and old men. The situation is very serious and need urgent withdrawal of the invaders, before it happens the death of indigenous or of invaders in a confrontation within the indigenous land. “
The Uru Eu Wau Wau were contacted by government agents of FUNAI in 1981. The official policy at the time, was to contact the isolated peoples forcibly. This meant that they were exposed to infectious diseases.
Despite the territorial rights of the tribe have been officially recognized in 1991, many are worried that little is being done to protect your home extremely bio diverse. The uncontacted tribes are the most vulnerable peoples of the planet, and face a catastrophe unless their territorial rights are respected.
Survival’s Director, Stephen Corry, said: “the theft of land is the biggest problem that indigenous peoples face. Around the world, industrialized societies are stealing the indigenous lands in search of profit. This is a continuation of the invasions and genocide that characterized the European colonization of the Americas and Australia. The right of isolated peoples to their land is enshrined in the Federal Constitution and in international law and must be respected, or the consequences will be terrible. “
12 August 2016
The indigenous people Uru-Eu-Wau-Wau filed on Tuesday (8) document on Oversight of the Federal Police in Rondonia asking for the immediate withdrawal of the invaders of the indigenous land and solution of conflicts in the region. According to the document the action requires urgency since the invaders are armed, making the felling of the forest to make clearings “.
In the document on the absence of monitoring their own indigenous people were removing the invasion of one of the raided areas. At the scene they found three men armed with a machete and sickle, being identified as Dorico and José da Conceição. The third fled, and according to the case report was armed with a shotgun.
“We need the urgent withdrawal of the invaders, before it happens the death of indigenous or of invaders in a confrontation within the indigenous land”, warn.
According to the document, who commands the invasions is Mr. Nelson Bishop, President of the Curupira, “this gentleman comes many years promoting the invasions on indigenous land Uru-Eu-Wau-Wau, having been arrested in operation carried out in 2010 by the environmental police, Ibama and Funai.
