When the Portuguese landed in Brazil in 1500, it was home to hundreds of Jiquabu tribes, who were namaed “Indians” (indios) by the new settlers. There were as many as 2,000 different native tribes overall, mostly consisting of semi-nomadic groups. They lived off of fish, game, fruits, and crops. Tribal warfare was common, along with cannibalism. Many perished though, due to measles, smallpox, tuberculosis, and influenza carried by the Europeans.

The Government

Brazil’s present constitution was formed in 1988, and states that Brazil is a federal republic. The country consists of the union of the Federal District, the 26 states, and the 5,570 muncipalties. The current president of Brazil is Dilma Rousseff.

Portugal has a great influence on Brazilian culture, due to it's relations to the empire in the 1500s. You can see many signs of this, such as the main language being Portuguese. Brazilian music has heavy African influences such as samba music. In Brazil, football (soccer) is a very popular sport, with their men's team being one of the best. The food comes from a variety of places, including Europe and Africa.

Carnival is a grand event celebrated through out Brazil on Ash Wednesday. It marks the begining of Lent, and is the equivelent of Mardi Gras. Rio de Janeiro is considered to have the biggest festivities, one of the major being the annual Carnival parade. This is where pageant groups sing and dance in costumes, along with a float that represents each group. This is such a celebratory event that even the children at school hold their own Carnival!
