Summary: Brazil's indigenous peoples were at a nadir fifty years ago, but are recovering strongly in numbers, protected lands, and pride. But they still face serious political threats, and are grappling with problems in health, education and modern subsistence. John Hemming illustrates the changes from first contacts to computer literacy with stunning photography.
