The Plight of the Indigenous

The UN declared that indigenous people are some of the poorest in the world. A UN forum wants to eradicate hunger, and improve education among indigenous peoples, and it surely has a lot of work to do.

There are still some very isolated tribal people living in the Amazon. In Brazil, they are actually losing protection, along with the forest that has been their home for millennia. Loggers want the wood, and they don't care what they have to do to get it. The exploitation and genocide of the Americas continues into the 21st century, with the indigenous being affected the most.
