“A few kilometers from Rio de Janeiro, in the city of Niterói, in a very beautiful beach called Camboinhas, there’s a wonderful residential neighborhood. Near this area lives an ancient tribe belonging to an indigenous group called Guaranì.
They are a very friendly community but it seems like the rich people living in the neighborhood don’t like them.
The tribe is made up of 67 families living in ten houses. They’ve been here since before the Portuguese navigators came to this land, but they were forced to leave because of the civilization. They came back to claim their land because it is sacred to them. They’re the real owners of this land, so it’s very important to support them. This is where Brazil was formed, and they are the real Brazilians.
Their daily life is very simple. They sell art crafts and fish in the lagoon behind the village, especially shrimps and crabs. There is a school in which they teach children many different subjects in addition to Portuguese and Guaraní, because keeping their identity is very important to them. In their church they teach the children about their religion and their rituals”.
“I’m Percy, president and leader of the community of this island on which six families live. The most important activities for us are fishing and selling handmade fabrics. We build our islands with reeds that we call totoras. We travel kilometers to find new totoras. The reeds and their roots are found in nature in a sort of block called khili. We use these …

“Masai people don't live in proper villages. They live in small communities formed by huts made of soil and straw. The huts are arranged in a circle, and inside the circle there's a pen for the cattle. The Masai surround the houses with thorny branches to keep away wild animals such as lions, leopards and hyenas.The tribe lives mainly on breeding cattle, sheep, …
“Their main activities are hunting and collecting food. Women look for the food while the men hunt animals, both for their meat and their skin, which they wear as protection. They build bows and arrows and use poisoned arrows to kill big animals such as zebras and buffalos. Sometimes they are forced to travel during the dry season to follow the migrating …
“Our village prays when the sun sets, when all the birds and people are asleep and there is no more noise. In our worshipping we pray for our crops, like tropical fruit, to grow well. We pray for the sun and rain to come and make everything grow in the best way possible. We do many ceremonies in which we all dance together, and at the end of the season we have …
Often we know nothing of them, only that they exist. Free spirits: in the thick of the forest, at the edge of the world. Don’t miss this journey through tribal cultures: different ways of life, far from traditional civilisation, close to nature.
Is another world possible? We went to find out. To open up our minds, but also because these are vulnerable men and women, often condemned to flee from the invasion of their lands and traditions. Or worse, to disappear. Sometimes without the world even realising.
