Introduction

The Guajá reside in Brazil's pre-Amazon region and are one of the last groups of hunter-gatherers of Brazil, and the world. In addition to those Guajá who were contacted and settled by Brazil's Indian Service (FUNAI), an unknown number are still uncontacted and live in the adjacent forested areas of this region.
