The Kayapo are an indigenous group of Indians living in the rainforest of Brazil . The discovery of gold drastically changed the lives of the Indians. Some of them actually became "businessmen" in order to save their traditional way of life. The Brazilian developers also wished to build a dam that would force Kayapo out of their lands. International recognition of the work of Altamira protesting the dam won international attention. Using these comments as the setting, visit the websites listed below and respond by taking a position regarding the rights of the indigenous people to preserve their way of life (culture) over the rights of those of the greater "world" to have access to it.

You may take a position of support for the takeover or opposition to it. Each position should be described and supported by at least five valid statements. However, you must also give two valid statements in support of your opposing viewpoint. Consider the models and examples provided in the text also. You may use other resources.
