Summary of “Forced Into the City After 9,000 Years in the Jungle”

With him are his wife and toddler and infant sons, four of the roughly 500 indigenous Warao people of Venezuela seeking refuge in the Brazilian city of Manaus.
There is no refugee flow quite like that of the Warao to Manaus.
To regain them, in December 2016, the first Warao embarked on a thousand-mile journey, passing south through midsize Venezuelan cities and Brazilian border towns to reach a true metropolis: Manaus.
By April, 318 Warao had made their way to the city, and government agencies and charities rallied to care for them.
Some of the Warao found treatment in a small, air-conditioned room near the city center, often using two translators-one for Warao to Spanish, and another for Spanish to Portuguese.
City doctors, who’ve instructed the Warao on hygiene and how to take medicine, have administered more than 1,000 examinations.
The Warao may be getting a relatively friendly reception because many Manaus residents are descended from the refugees of the economic and climatic disasters of previous eras.
Among the Warao now living in the city, QuiƱonez finds his connections to his homeland fraying.
