Indigenous peoples have been fighting for more than 500 years for the right to live. APIB (Articulation of Indigenous Peoples of Brazil) is part of this history of resistance. It is the widest grouping of indigenous peoples in Brazil: a network of organizations with representation in all regions of the country. APIB is united by the strength of its ancestors to protect the lives of peoples and territories under attack. Know about and be part of this fight! Strengthen the rights of indigenous peoples! We are all APIB and APIB is all of us!
APIB was created by the indigenous movement at Camp Terra Livre (ATL) in 2005.
ATL is a national mobilization, held every year since 2004, in order to increase awareness about the situation of indigenous rights.
APIB was created from the bottom up. It was born with the purpose of strengthening the unity of Brazilian indigenous peoples, and the communication between different indigenous regions and organizations, in addition to mobilizing indigenous peoples against threats and aggression against their rights.
