We are committed to providing indigenous communities with the land necessary for their existence.
In 1979 and 1986 the Totobiegosode were contacted and forced a group to settle in the compounds of a fundamentalist Christian mission. They were unable to adapt to the new surroundings, and living conditions were precarious. In 1993 the group filed a land claim in the hope of being able to live independently on the brink of their ancient forests.
Some of the relatives of these groups escaped and have remained in the forest to this day. They are probably the only surviving uncontacted hunters and gatherers in Paraguay. Their traditional territories are in serious danger of being devastated by loggers and ranchers.
