Brazil hosts World Indigenous Games

The first World Indigenous Games is currently underway in Palmas, a steamy agricultural outpost in central Brazil.

Billed as indigenous peoples’ answer to the Olympics, the 10-day event has drawn around 2,000 people from dozens of Brazilian tribes and nearly 20 countries.

The event, which includes canoeing, archery and tug-of-war, runs through Nov. 1.
