Introduction

The caboclos da Serra do Umã (civilized Indians of the Umã Hills), of the interior of the State of Pernambuco, learned how to dance the toré with their Tuxá neighbors. In the early 1940s, they went to Serviço de Proteção aos Índios - Service for the Protection of the Indians - (SPI), beginning the process of their official recognition as an indigenous group.
