In 1940, two children from the Krahô indigenous people found an ox dangerously close to their village in the darkness of the forest. It was the harbinger of a violent massacre perpetuated by the region's farmers. In 1969, during the military dictatorship, the Brazilian state incited many of the survivors to join a military unit. Today, in the face of old and new threats, the Krahô continue to walk on their sacred land, reinventing endless forms of resistance every day.
