Indian communities still live today in the forests of Brazil. Specifically in the so-called Legal Amazon, which covers nine states in Brazil. Native Americans live mostly in protected areas. But these areas are not sufficient, as the Indians also require other jurisdictions to ensure the survival of their lifestyle. They are uninhabited, but they usually use. FUNAI, the National Indian Foundation has defined these areas. The aim is to introduce natural areas they need to protect them from dangers such as deforestation. Some numbers: Brazil has slightly more than 800,000 Indians, divided into 230 ethnic groups of more than 680 different territories.

For the moment only 22% of Amazonia is reserved for Indians.
