The first-ever World Indigenous Games are underway in Brazil. However, the competition among the athletes is already being overshadowed by demonstrations against the embattled government of Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff.

CRI's Poornima Weerasekara has more:

 

Billed as the indigenous peoples' answer to the Olympics, the World Indigenous Games has drawn around 2,000 native people from dozens of Brazilian tribes and nearly 20 countries to Brazil.

The games, in the northern Brazilian city of Palmas, kicked-off on Friday with a colorful parade with teams dressed in straw skirts, feathers and Artic furs.

Eduardo Arellanes, a participant from Mexico says the games help to bring indigenous culture onto the world stage.
