Em Busca da Terra Sem Mal
Quando os desbravadores chegaram em terras brasileiras estima-se que haviam 10 milhões de indios. Hoje esse numero não ultrapassa 1 milhão, segundo a FUNAI. A falta de políticas adequadas e divisão de terras traz como consequência o desamparo e a marginalização deste povo já habitava o Brasil muito antes da chegada do desbravadores em 1500. Hoje, o sub-grupo Guarani Mbyá é quem talvez dos povos Guarani que ainda mais conserva as práticas tradicionais e religiosas, buscando viver de acordo com as normas dos antigos. Os índios Guaranis Mbya acreditam que exista uma terra sem mal, conforme o criador, Nhaderu (Deus) prometeu desde o momento que os colocou no mundo. Assim, Em Busca da Terra Sem Mal é entendido como a fuga da Terra do Mal. O lugar definido como mundo arruinado, a terra do Inimigo.

With the absence of you are involved in politics adequate and division of lands the consequence is the helplessness, the conflicts and to marginalization of this people that already inhabited Brazil very before of the arrival of the explorers. Today, the Guarani sub-group Mbyá is who perhaps of the Guarani peoples that more conserves the religious and traditional practices and that still are going to live according to the norms of the old, even living with the imposed precepts and established society «white».
