Indigenous Peoples Policy | Política para Povos Indígenas

With 236 distinct Indigenous peoples, located on 565 different Indigenous Lands, and speaking over 180 languages,i Brazil is one of the most culturally diverse nations in the world. Indigenous Lands encompass over 12% of the total area of Brazil, which operate under a special regime of protection, and Indigenous peoples are important managers of this rich natural heritage. Although FUNBIO does not have as part of its direct mandate working with Indigenous Peoples, it has prior experience with several projects that involve Indigenous Peoples and anticipates that future projects may incorporate such involvement.
