The pacification war in Amazonia

D’ Yves Billon

Synopsis

This report is the last chapter of the history of indian tribes in Brazil caught in the trap of modern civilisation. The PARAKANA indians undergo the first contact, which begins the process of their pacification.

They are drawn by presents laid out in the forest, then they are settled around the attraction camps. Afterwards they will be parked in native reserves before being completely assimilated by our all-conquering civilisation.

Pacifications are always carried out for strategic or economic aims. Indian civilisations of Brazilian Amazonia are either dead or dying . What else can they teach us to-day other than our own cruelty, ignorance and pretension ?
