Brazil has advanced greatly in recent years. On the one hand, it has become a model of democracy for Latin America. On the other hand, it has managed to incorporate the fight for gender equality and the promotion of racial equality.
But still Brazil has failed to promote the historic rescue of our native peoples, or Indians, who still remains somewhat on the fringes of the development process itself as a subordinate population. What is the reason for this delay?
They can not be left behind, because our history can not be orphaned.
From the time of the European invasion when the King of Portugal on April 22, 1500, commanded his fleet to the territory today called Brazil, indigenous Indians lost many rights. With the greed of discovering beyond sea, the invasion killed many Indians.
It is now time to fully recognize and protect the Brazilian indigenous population.
The Recognize and protect the Brazilian indigenous population petition to Indians, human rights, citizenship, culture, education was written by Hélio Araújo Silva and is in the category Civil Rights at GoPetition.
