On 28 August 2007, Tarso Genro, Brazil’s Minister of Justice, signed two ministerial decrees acknowleding 18,070 hectares of land in Espirito Santo as belonging to the Tupinikim and Guarani Indigenous Peoples. The Tupinikim and Guarani have been struggling to regain their land from the pulp company Aracruz for many years. Before the decision, 7,061 hectares had been demarcated as indigenous land but the remaining 11,009 hectares was planted with Aracruz’s eucalyptus monocultures.
