    Background: NINETY INDIANS FROM PRIMITIVE TRIBES ARE BEING TRAINED AS POLICEMEN AT THE MILITARY POLICE BARRACKS AT BELO HORIZONTE, CENTRAL BRAZIL.

    THE INDIANS ARE FROM THE CARAJA, CRAO, XERENTE, GAVIAO AND MEXALI TRIBES AND ARE TO BE POLICEMEN IN THE REMOTE "GREEN HELL" OF THE JUNGLE-COVERED MATO GROSSO. THEY WERE SELECTED FROM THE BEST WARRIORS IN THEIR TRIBES.

    THEIR UNIFORM WILL BE GREEN TROUSERS AND YELLOW SHIRTS -- THE NATIONAL COLOURS OF BRAZIL.

    THE TRAINING INCLUDES INSTRUCTION IN JUDO, HORSEMANSHIP, USE OF FIREARMS, PROCEDURES FOR MAKING ARRESTS, FIRE-FIGHTING, HYGIENE AND FIRST AID. THE BRAZILIAN GOVERNMENT HOPES TO TRAIN 4,000 INDIAN POLICEMEN BY 1971. THEIR MAIN TASK WILL BE TO TRAIN THE INDIANS TO PROTECT THEIR TRIBES FROM UNSCRUPULOUS WHITES INTENT ON STEALING THEIR LAND AND CATTLE.

    ORGANISING THE COURSE IS CAPTAIN MANUEL PINHEIRO, AND A JUDO "BLACK BELT", CAPTAIN ALBANO, INSTRUCTS THE INDIANS IN UNARMED COMBAT.
