"Most of Brazil's indigenous groups have not changed their languages or traditions"

This is highly unlikely.

It should be less wordy in order to improve readability. For example, "...tribe is likely to belong to the pano language group," could instead say, "...tribe likely belongs to the pano language group." (talk)18:17, 23 June 2011

Ok. Thanks for your feedback. I tried to do my best while not copyvio the source. Maybe you should join the Newsroom and help copy edit articles before they are published.
