Over 800 members of Indigenous tribes from across Brazil are camped in the capital, Brasilia, to protest what they say are attacks on their rights and land. Congress is debating legislation that could weaken those rights, and the Supreme Court is expected to decide a case that could affect land ownership. Michael Fox reports that this comes at a time that the president is saying Indigenous groups should do more to develop their land.
