The Matsés are an indigenous people whose territories are divided by the Brazil-Peru border in the remote Amazon. The tribe is currently experiencing a threat from multinational oil companies which are planning to drill for oil in the Matsés legally-titled 490,000 hectare indigenous territory. The tribe vehemently opposes the planned oil exploration and are prepared to fight companies with bows, arrows and spears to keep them out.
