Visitor tells of life in jeopardy
GilbertoMakuxiisa man witha
mission. His mission, he tayt, it lo
inform United States citiens, espe
cially Native Americans, of the
plight facing the indigenous peo
ples of Brazil. "The indigenous
people are being marginalized and
they are completely isolated with
out any support, says Makuxi,
who recently visited Warm Springs.
"The government is trying to take
away our lands there is a lot of
pressure from politicians, ranchers
and loggers" to do just that, he
says. Makuxi spoke through an
interpreter, Kathy Shields.
An ongoing military project, the
Calhe Norte, puts in jeopardy the
lives and cultures of those tribes
living in the gold-and diamond- .
rich 150-kiIomcter-wide strip bdri
dcring Brazil and neighboring coun
tries. "The military wants to divide
up the lands into colonies' that 1
would be used for national forests 1
and mining purposes, says Makuxi. x
I hey want to destroy our culture I
and our lives." With this project, he
says, the military is attempting to
"nav off their foreien debt thev're
going to kill us all to pay off the 1
debt." Proposed hydroelectric pro- i
jeets would flood the lands cur
rently occupied by indigenous peo
ple so they would have to leave the
Resistance, however logical and
just it may be, is answered with
violence. Makuxi relates that sev
eral people, including women and
children, have been killed in con
frontations with loggers, miners
and the military. He says 19 leaders
of the Makuxi tribe have been
imprisoned by the military, police
and civil patrol. "I have been marked
out by the police and politicians,"
says Makuxi, showing scars on his
chest and legs that are results of
three separate attempts on his life.
Makuxi said Wednesday that his
nine-year-old daughter, Josilania,
suffered serious head injuries in an
unprovoked attack last week when
someone broke into their home.
"The ranchers are killing people
and they have the support of the
government and police and we don't
have the support of anybody."

Makuxi says that the people can't
fish and hunt "because we know
the ranchers and police are the
re.. .all they want to do is divide up
the land as quickly as they can."
Makuxi named one of his sons
Jeronimo because of his deep con
cern for the survival of his people.
"I was thinking about our problem
and the survival of my peoplc.think
ing I might be killed. At that same
time, my son was born." He had
seen a book about Jeronimo and it
was explained to him that Jero
nimo struggled for the survival of
his people. "If they kill me, my son
can continue on with my work. I've
drawn plans so that all my children
can know what it is I want to do
and how they need to work for
form the Alliance of Indigicnous
People with the people of the Uni
ted States, the people of Austrialia
and Peru and with all the nations. I
gave my son this name so that he
would have the strength to con
tinue the struggle...I made these
plans because it is a just strug
gle.. .all peoples of the world need
to make a commitment to defend
indigenous people, not just defend
ourselves but all brothers and sis
ters who are faced with problems."
Makuxi was brought to the Uni
ted States by Kluckhohn and the
Lummi tribe. The Kluckhohn orga
nization studies groups in conflict
and is based in Seattle. Makuxi
will be in the United States for a
month, possibly two, and has so far
met with the Nisqually and Yaki
mas tribes, CERT and other Indian
The purpose of Makuxi's visit is
two-fold; to increase awareness
among Native Americans and to
ensure that the natives of Brazil
receive fair treatment. "My con
cern is for a just struggle for my
people and land."
