Recently, a Yanomamiindigenous boy died in Brazil after contracting Covid-19, raising fears for the Amazon tribes.
Brazil is home to an estimated 8,00,000 indigenous people from more than 300 ethnic groups.
Guarani, Kaingang, Pataxó Hã Hã Hãe Tupinambá, Yanomami, Tikuna and Akuntsu are popular tribe of Amazon.
Yanomami, also called South American Indians, live in the remote forest of the Orinoco River basin in southern Venezuela and the northernmost reaches of the Amazon River basin in northern Brazil.
They numbered around 27,000 individuals throughout their range.
Yanomami live in small, scattered, semi permanent villages and speak the Xirianá language.
They practice hunting and slash-and-burn agriculture.
It can be noted that recently, a Brazilian indigenous leader Davi Kopenawa who secured the land rights of the Yanomami people was awarded the Right Livelihood Award-2019, also known as Sweden's alternative Nobel Prize.
