The Ayoreo-Totobiegosode suffer greatly from the theft of their land – although the Paraguayan constitution guarantees Indian land ownership, the Ayoreo’s land has almost all been taken over by ranchers, forcing them out of their forest and making it very difficult for them to support themselves.
Many of the Indians’ relatives continue to live uncontacted in the forest. Unless this area is quickly secured and transferred to them, much of it will be destroyed.
How you can help
Please write to the President of Paraguay and the President of INDI, the Paraguayan government’s Indian affairs department, to urge them to title the Ayoreo-Totobiegosode’s remaining lands to them without delay.
