A man wearing a headdress and another wearing a ski mask sit on a windowsill on the site of an old Indian museum, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Saturday, Jan. 12, 2013. Police in riot gear on Saturday surrounded the site in preparation for the eviction of an indigenous settlement of men and women living on the grounds of the old museum. The museum is located next to the Maracana stadium, which is being refurbished to host the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2016 Olympics and the final match of the 2014 World Cup. Authorities say the compound must go as the area around the stadium is also being refurbished, expected to be transformed into a shopping and sports entertainment hub. (AP Photo/Felipe Dana)
