Thousands of indigenous people descended on the Brazilian capital of Brasilia on Wednesday for an annual three-day camp known as the 'Free Land Encampment.'

Representatives from various tribes wearing feathered head-dresses and body paint were seen singing and dancing next to the tents pitched outside the Brazilian Congress.

Demonstrators rallied against what they claim to be Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro's assault on indigenous land rights.

An indigenous man from the Xukuru tribe, Cacique Marcos, said: "We are here taking a stand to show our capacity to organise ourselves and resist as long as we live, to ensure that our rights are not usurped by this government."
