Women from the Guajajara indigenous ethnic group wear protective masks at a community school in the indigenous village of Morro Branco in the municipality of Grajau, state of Maranhao, Brazil October 4, 2020. Guajajara leaders praised the armed forces for air lifting doctors and nurses to do rapid COVID-19 tests and examine for other diseases, but criticized the government's indigenous health service SESAI for not protecting them against the novel coronavirus.

The Defense Ministry said its doctors did 37,000 checkups since Sept. 24 and supplied 39 tonnes of medicine, food and protective equipment to the Guajajara, a tribe that lives on several reservations in the rainforest of Maranhão state. REUTERS/Adriano Machado

A child from the indigenous Guajajara ethnic group looks on in the indigenous village of Urucu Jurua, municipality of Grajau, Maranhao state, Brazil October 3, 2020. Indigenous and human rights groups such as the Indigenous Missionary Council (Cimi) and Human Rights Watch have criticized the government for reducing the SESAI's scope and ignoring the plight of indigenous people in the face of the pandemic.

There have been 447 deaths from COVID-19 so far among Brazil's 800,000 indigenous people, according to SESAI, which only provides healthcare to those living on reservations. Another 388 have died off reservation in urban areas, according to the main indigenous umbrella organization APIB. REUTERS/Adriano Machado
