The Enawene Nawe live in an area of savannah and tropical rainforest in Mato Grosso state, western Brazil. Although most of their land was officially reconised in 1996, a crucial area called the Rio Preto, where the Indians gather each year to trap and smoke fish, was left out.
The area is being heavily invaded by ranchers, and in a further blow the Mato Grosso state government has announced it will build a vast complex of hydroelectric dams upriver of the Enawene Nawe’s land.
