Masters Final Research Project, UBC Graduate School of Journalism

With approximately 51,000 members, the Guarani are currently Brazil’s largest tribe, accounting for a fifth of the country’s indigenous population. In recent years they have caught the media’s attention, as a movement to recover traditional land spread across the western states of Mato Grosso do Sul and Paraná. This project focused on the Guarani communities surrounding Guaíra, a small town on the border between Brazil and Paraguay. Throughout the year I collected and documented the life stories of indigenous peoples in the region, as they fought to repossess traditional land. The photos below showcase some of my work in this project. They were published by Outside-in, an International Relations Photo Journal from the University of British Columbia.
