Guaranì: a tribe on the edge of Rio de Janeiro

“A few kilometers from Rio de Janeiro, in the city of Niterói, in a very beautiful beach called Camboinhas, there’s a wonderful residential neighborhood. Near this area lives an ancient tribe belonging to an indigenous group called Guaranì.

They are a very friendly community but it seems like the rich people living in the neighborhood don’t like them.

The tribe is made up of 67 families living in ten houses. They’ve been here since before the Portuguese navigators came to this land, but they were forced to leave because of the civilization. They came back to claim their land because it is sacred to them. They’re the real owners of this land, so it’s very important to support them. This is where Brazil was formed, and they are the real Brazilians.

Their daily life is very simple. They sell art crafts and fish in the lagoon behind the village, especially shrimps and crabs. There is a school in which they teach children many different subjects in addition to Portuguese and Guaraní, because keeping their identity is very important to them. In their church they teach the children about their religion and their rituals”.
