- DescriptionIndigenous people comprise only 0.2 per cent of Brazil's population, yet occupy a prominent role in the nation's consciousness. In this text, Ramos explains this irony, exploring Indian and non-Indian attitudes about interethnic relations.

She has defended indigenous peoples, particularly Yanomami, acting as expert witness to the Brazilian Attorney General's Office and as mediator between the Sanuma and emergency medical teams working to combat epidemic malaria. She is the author of Sanuma Memories: Yanomami Ethnography in Times of Crisis, also published by the University of Wisconsin Press, and two other books.
