Please take a photo of me, I want to show my culture to people outside my tribe". This is Edilene, a Brazilian indigenous from Rikbaktsa ethnicity, which waa seen as fierce warriors back in the 60's, when they faced a depopulation process that has resulted in the extermination of 75% of their people. Nowadays they've recovered and are constantly fighting for their rights, territory and culture.⠀⠀ ⠀
