On August 7, 2019, one of the largest Brazilian newspapers, O Estado de São Paulo, published this news: “Yaci is representing the Indians of Brazil at the Pan American Games in Lima.” [1]

The article goes on to say that, for the first time in its history, Brazil will have an indigenous athlete in archery.

Graziela, or Yaci (indigenous name), is an example of how every human being has a natural tendency to progress. She says she always dreamed of going to college – she graduated in accounting last year – and to have a profession that required a lot of travel. She has now fulfilled her desire with the sport.

The sportswoman did not use bows and arrows to hunt and survive, which, she says, was a child toy. She adds: “Formerly, we used bows and arrows primarily for survival, to bring food home. But over time, other ways of hunting appeared, including firearms, and we started using them for entertainment. As for me, I now use them differently, with the sport.”

The Indians also wants to progress, integrate with society, study at universities, travel the world, etc. The old cliché that indigenous people must live in the jungle naked, surviving from hunting and fishing, and with no right to civilization and evangelization is a utopia of leftist anthropologists, radical activists, and supporters of the decrepit liberation theology, which, unfortunately, they are trying resurrect in Pope Francis’ pontificate.
