These pages are dedicated to the indian nation 'Xukuru de Ororubá'.

The members of this tribe in north-eastern Brasil fight for their right
to own and use their own (!) land.

they leave 'their' land unused and contract armed men to avoid

Aside from telling the life, struggle and murder of the chief Francisco
de Assis Araújo
'Chicão' (see image) these pages describe the general
situation of the Xukuru, and give you a look into their day-by-day-life,
showing a deep respect for nature and man.

The portuguese version of these pages hold the entire book, written
to alert the public about the murder and the fight for justice.

economic and social situation of the Xukuru.
