Brazil's newly-named Minister of Indigenous Peoples Sonia Guajajara attends a meeting where Brazil's President-elect Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva announced the ministers for his incoming government, in Brasilia, Brazil, Thursday, Dec. 29, 2022.

She is widely known as the leader of the main umbrella group for Brazil’s many Indigenous tribes and is a member of the Amazon Guajajara.

“It is a collective achievement of the Indigenous peoples, a historic moment of reparation in Brazil.”

The lands where Brazil’s Indigenous peoples live constitute one of the world’s most important carbon sinks. »
