Brazil Indigenous people win – level 1

26-09-2023 07:00

Brazil’s top court helps Indigenous people very much. The court says no to a plan which would stop them from getting their land.

Many people are very happy in Brazil. Especially in the Amazon area. Lots of Indigenous people live there. The court protects their history and rights. There are 11 judges. Only two judges say yes to the plan. Ex-president Jair Bolsonaro chooses these judges in the past. He does not care about Indigenous people.

Before this, some people worry that Indigenous people will not get their land. It would be very bad for them. So, the court’s decision is really important.  It is a win for Indigenous people. It also shows that Brazil has to care about these people more.

Difficult words: Indigenous (people who live in a place for many years), right (when someone can do or have something), judge (one of a group of people who decide about a legal problem).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What actions do you think Brazil needs to take in order to protect the rights of Indigenous people in the future?
