Eliane Fernandes was born in Pocos de Caldas, an idyllic spa town in a volcano crater in the south east of Brazil. But her ancestors came from the north of the country. Ethnologist Eliane Fernandes, the descendant of a rich rubber plant owner who made his fortune in the Amazon jungle, researches indigenous peoples in her native Brazil for the University of Bremen.
