Brazil: The Land Of Deni - Documentary Video On The Indigenous Deni People


The Deni are a native tribe, that lives in the Southeast of the Brazilian Amazon. In 2003 they were the first indians in the amazon to have their territory officially recognized by the federal government, after a long, difficult process. By recognising this right, the government is not only preserving the region's remaining indigenous cultures but also contributing to the preservation of extensive areas of Amazon rain forest. This documentary won the First prize in the MIDCAM (2006) - II International Film Festival Environment in Brazil, category Media International.


The "Land of Deni" was made by Mario Lopes, with voice off of Isabel Gaspar Dias.
