Brazil's indigenous people are fighting a personal battle to save the rainforest
A record number of fires are burning in the Amazon rainforest. The extent of the area damaged by fires has yet to be determined, but smoke has been choking the city of São Paulo - more than 2,700 km away. 

This may have caught the attention of Brazilians living in cities, but for indigenous communities, they are a direct threat to their homes and way of life.
