Supysaua: A Documentary Report on the Conditions of Indian Peoples in Brazil.
Given in this documentary report are 4 reports which discuss American Indian policy and practice in Brazil since 1970. They factually document what is happening to Brazilian Indian tribes in the name of "progress", "integration", and "growth". The articles are entitled: (1) "Genocide"; (2) "Y-Juca-Pirama"; (3) "The Policy of Genocide Against the Indians of Brazil"; and (4) "The Rape of Indian Territory: Foreign Aid and Investment in the Brazilian Amazon". The first report is an abridged version of Norman Lewis's article on "Genocide" which created the original international scandal about Indian policy in Brazil. "Y-Juca-Pirama", written by a group of Brazilian bishops and clerics, documents the contemporary nature of Indian policy in Brazil. The third report is an abridged version of a report presented at the XLI International Congress of Americanists in Mexico City, September 1974. The final report is a chart of foreign aid and investment programs in the Amazon region. Also included are: (1) listings of organizations in support of Amazonian Indian rights and Brazil's Indian groups and (2) a map of Indian groups, culture areas, and the trans-Amazonic road system.
