The Public Management and Citizenship Program, Brazil

With almost two thirds of their population made up by children and youths, the Krenak people are attempting to recover their culture and economy based on the memory of the few elderly members of the tribe who still speak the Krenak tongue, through a bilingual Indian school where youths and children learn about their own history and also new concepts of modern society, as a way of maintaining a krenak identity.
