Landmark victory: Brazil’s Xokleng Indigenous people reclaim ancestral rights

In a historic triumph for Brazil’s Indigenous people, the Xokleng community of Santa Catarina state has secured their ancestral land rights, marking a significant turning point. The federal supreme court’s decision, disregarding the “time limit” on claims, is a beacon of hope for Indigenous groups nationwide.

This victory underscores the resilience of the Xokleng in their century-long battle for justice. While challenges persist, this ruling paves the way for a brighter future, as Brazil takes a step closer to recognizing and respecting the rights of its Indigenous populations.
