The indigenous Guarani-Kaiowá community of Brazil has not had access to their ancestral land since the 1970s. The case is being heard before the Inter-American Court of Human Rights this month.

The most populous indigenous community of Brazil has continuously been forced out of their ancestral land. An estimated 30,000 Guarani-Kaiowá people now live in less than one percent of their original territory, according to FIAN International reports.
