Articulação dos Povos Indígenas do Brasil (APIB)
Country of Origin: Brazil
The Coalition of Indigenous Peoples of Brazil (APIB) is a unifying national body and reference point for the indigenous movement of Brazil.
APIB was created by the indigenous movement at Free Land Camp (ATL) 2005. ATL is our national mobilization, held every year, starting in 2004, to increase awareness over the situation of indigenous rights and claim from the Brazilian Government the fulfillment of its demands.
APIB is a national authority and point of reference for the indigenous movement in Brazil, created from the bottom up. It brings together our indigenous regional organizations and was born with the purpose of strengthening the unity of our peoples, the articulation between the different indigenous regions and organizations in the country, in addition to mobilizing indigenous peoples and organizations against threats and aggressions against indigenous rights.
Today APIB is once again here and fulfilling its role.
