The Enawene Nawe Indians ended their protest at the site of a planned hydroelectric dam on Tuesday.

The Indians had blockaded the construction site of the dam in the Brazilian Amazon, and a local highway, for nearly a week. They want to stop the construction of a complex of hydroelectric dams being built on the Juruena river, upstream from their land.
