The book presents a current overview of the existence and situation of isolated indigenous peoples, and the fragility of their territories before the expansion of deforestation and enterprise development. It also contains chapters on the specific situations and challenges some peoples are faced with, thanks to the collaboration of various civil society researchers and professionals with long histories in the regions described, as well as indigenous partners who share their territories with isolated peoples and are today crucial for the protection of these groups. It presents the main threats to indigenous peoples in voluntary isolation, who are at risk of extermination if forest clearing continues. The book covers some of the more emblematic cases of the critical situation of survival of these groups, with the objective of alerting the Brazilian state, civil society, press and international organisations to the urgent need for protecting isolated indigenous peoples and their territories.
