This document describes the cultural genocide of the indigenous peoples of Paraguay by the New Tribes Mission. The fundamentalists missionaries of the NTM have been particularly destructive among the Ayoreode of the Chaco, and the document looks at how the destruction has increased over the last thirty years. The author places the work of the NTM ia a historical context stretching back to the time of the Jesuits. He charts meticulously the process by which uncontacted hunting people are converted into Christian fodder for the labour market of the national society. The document has been produced to coincide with a British Yorkshire Television film about the culture genocide committed by the New Tribes Mission.
