More than 10,000 indigenous people rely on Brazil’s Xingu River for survival. Now a proposed hydroelectric dam, the third largest in the world, threatens their hope of a sustainable future. This video bears witness to their determination to protect their way of life, as they gather at the Xingu Alive Encounter in Altamira in 2008.
