- The Universidade Federal do Oeste do Para (UFOPA) in Brazil has digitized the archive of the Court of Justice located in the city of Óbidos, Brazil in the Lower Amazon region. A particular point of cultural interest in this collection is the series of documentation on trials regarding land disputes. This part of the collection reflects the support of local people for creating protected areas including indigenous lands, territories of descendants of African slaves, and ecological conservation units for people of historical traditions. This content can help reconstitute chains of ownership of lands to better identify instances of land grabbing. These court records also document the daily lives of Amazonian civilians in a time of restricted individual rights as well as the modernization of Amazonia by authoritarian projects.
