Have any indigenous peoples won property rights disputers against developers and/or the state?

    Unfortunately, indigenous land disputes are rarely resolved in favor of indigenous peoples. Globalization and the race for development has meant a resurgence of corporate exploitation of traditional lands. For example many of the 400,000 indigenous Amazonians in Peru have said they were not consulted about the use of their land by oil, gas, timber, and mining companies. One positive case: Brazil’s Supreme Court recently sided with tribal Amazonians in a land dispute where authorities tried to violently evict farmers from their 4.2 million-acre reservation.
