Racism against Indigenous Peoples in Brazil: An Overview of cases from CIMI's Reports on Violence against Indigenous Peoples

Rodrigo Barbosa-Ribeiro (CLAS)


Venue: Seminar Room 204, Second Floor, CLAS, Alison Richard Building, 7 West Road, CB3 9DT

Only a few studies have been focusing on the racism faced by Indigenous people in Brazilian society. This seminar aims to address this gap by analyzing the episodes described in the "Reports on Violence Against Indigenous Peoples", a series of publications which compiles cases from 2003 until 2021. After reading and systematizing 324 reported events, it was possible to see how racism is widespread throughout the country, with cases reported in nearly every Brazilian state, the Federal District, and in cities with a variety of sociodemographic profiles. Racism against Indigenous peoples manifests in different patterns, as revealed by the analysis of the agents who perpetrate these acts and by the scrutiny of some episodes. Regardless of the different contexts, racism excludes the Indigenous presence in Brazilian cities.
