Indigenous groups want the Brazilian government to recognize more of their territories and protect them from criminal activities, agroup of 40 Indigenous leaders met President Lula at the presidential palace, APA reports citing Deutsche Welle.

Thousands of Indigenous people marched through Brazil's capital, Brasilia, on Thursday, protesting against the government's failure to recognize more of their ancestral lands officially.

Along with calling for more land recognition, some tribes also protested a proposed 950-kilometer (590-mile) rail project.

The Ferrograo railway will transport grain from farms in the central part of the country, to ports along the Tapajos River, a large Amazon tributary.
