Today, April 19th, Brazil celebrates the National Indian Day.
In Pernambuco, the state of Brazil we’re currently calling ‘home’, there are still a few indigenous tribes – and most important of all, some of them still keep their native language, like the ones featured here.
The most common indigenous tribes in Pernambuco are: the Xucuru, the Fulni-ô, the Pankararu, and the Truká.
Recently, other groups were added to the list, although, with fewer representatives: the Atikum, the Kambiwá and the Kapinawá. In order to honor today’s date, please find below a few images from the artistic tribe Fulni-ô, with 3,229 confirmed members.
