An indigenous group in the Amazon is taking a stand against Brazilian government plans to build a series of dams which threaten to flood their land.

Over the last few months thousands of Munduruku have been protesting against the proposed hydroelectric dams on the Tapajos river.

BBC News met some of the Munduruku people to hear why they oppose the plan.
