Emboldened By Bolsonaro, Armed Invaders Encroach On Brazil's Tribal Lands

According to Reuters, ten days after Brazil’s right-wing President Jair Bolsonaro took office, dozens of men entered protected indigenous land in a remote corner of the Amazon.

Inspired by Bolsonaro’s vow to open more native territory to commercial development, the men, armed with machetes and chainsaws went to stake their claims. Tribal members said that the trespassers threatened to set fire to their villages to drive them out, but retreated after tribesmen readied poison-tipped arrows .
