Mestizos are also descendants of the original indigenous.
.
Brazilian Indigenous are mostly of European descent also and few still use indigenous languages​​. The natives of these localities only speak Portuguese.
.
A third of the territory of the State of Amazonas is forbidden to Mestizos and is for exclusive use of Indians. This segregation policy is supported by the Brazilian Federal Government (administered by the Workers’ Party), rich European and U.S. NGOs.
