'We live in terror'

Brazil’s indigenous communities are fighting to protect their land
Brazil’s indigenous communities have protected the country's precious rainforests for centuries. But their way of life is under threat. 

There are growing concerns that the country's new president, Jair Bolsanaro, may take away some of their land for mining, hydroelectric dams and agribusiness.

The BBC’s South America business correspondent Daniel Gallas visited the annual Acampamento Terra Livre event, or Free Land Camp, to assess the mood among Brasilia's indigenous residents.
