Produced in 2010, Indigenas Digitais recounts the experiences of Indios Online, a network of Pataxo Hahahae, Kariri-Xocó, Tupinambá, Pankararé and other Indigenous Peoples in Brazil that strives to provide communities with access to information and promote intercultural dialogue.
Dispelling the myth that Indigenous people somehow forfeit their identity by using communication technologies, Indigenas Digitais demonstrates how Indigenous Peoples are utilizing mobile phones, cameras, camcorders, computers and the internet to empower their struggles for rights and promote better days for their communities.

Indigenous Peoples are putting their bodies on the line and it's our responsibility to make sure you know why. That takes time, expertise and resources - and we're up against a constant tide of misinformation and distorted coverage. By supporting IC you're empowering the kind of journalism we need, at the moment we need it most.
