The Macaw People
Like several other communities, dismally and sadly, their traditions have been hindered in the past due to, mainly, exploitation of territories and repression of customs by groups that sought the riches present in the land that had belonged to indigenous peoples. Yet over recent years, the Shawãdawa have been working on reverting the cultural deprivation suffered by the younger generations, focusing especially on reclaiming their language and passing down customs, lore, and rites that were nearly appropriated away from their own, and although there is still much to recover and work on, inspiring progress has been made as the rights to an enlargement of the territory that rightfully belongs to the Shawãdawa has been won back by the community.
