The series Ka'apor—People of the Forest, produced by TV Cultura in partnership with the Amazon Rainforest Journalism Fund and the Pulitzer Center, shows how this ethnic group developed a special way to ensure their own survival in the state of Maranhão, in the middle of the Amazon Rainforest.

Reporter Lais Duarte, from TV Cultura's journalism department, spent 10 days with the Ka'apor and tells, in five chapters, the saga of this people. Journalist Jorge Valente is the editor.
