A chief of the Wajãpi people, who suffered so much at the hands of non-Indiagenous, reaching near extinction twice, was a victim of a deadly attack by a man, supposedly a illegal miner, that invaded the Wajãpi Indigenous Land and committed a very brutal and violent. With stabs, he killed and pierced many body parts of the Indigenous leadership.
Coincidental or not, the attack took place in the very same day that President Jair Bolsonaro the defended the release of indigenous lands to mining companies.
