Brazil has an indigenous Indian population of around 450,000, comprising more than 200 peoples who speak more than 180 different languages. According to the National Foundation for the Indian (FUNAI) the indigenous population has been growing at a rate of more than 3.5% per year and is now four times greater than in 1950. FUNAI also estimates that in the Brazilian Amazon there are more than 60 ‘uncontacted’ Indian groups living in complete isolation from the outside world. Government policy is to avoid contact with such groups unless they are in extreme danger.
