The Krahô ethnic group is composed of approximately 32 villages, located in the state of Tocantins. The scenery of the Krahô land is beautiful with its cerrado cut by hundreds of springs, paths and buriti trees. All villages are currently served by roads paved by primary coating (gravel), giving access to vehicles.
Culturally, the Krahôs are considered one of the most resistant peoples of Brazil. They had their first contacts with the colonizing fronts that came from the northeastern coast, in the middle of the eighteenth century in the state of Maranhão. Feeling pressured, they came to inhabit the present state of Tocantins. In 1940, they suffered a massacre by the cattle breeders that had great national repercussion, the government then had to demarcate the present territory, an act that was consolidated in 1951. In the last decades, the Krahôs became famous by the movements that realized in search of elements of their ancestrality.
Located in the center-west of Brazil approximately 1,200 km from Brasília, the Krahô indigenous villages contribute to the preservation of about 300,000 ha. (3000 km2) of cerrado, this being the largest continuous area preserved in this biome.
Accompanied by Indigenist Fernando Schiavini and our team , we will participate in "tribal experiences" in these villages, giving our visitors the opportunity to learn about the history, habits and customs of this indigenous community, an experience of transformational results.
