Introduction

The Anambé live like the sertanejos (inhabitants of the sertão, the backlands) of the region. Their homes are the same as the local inhabitants’, and they buy merchandise in the local commerce. For some generations they have been intermarrying with non-Indians, integrating their partners and their children into village life. They react, however, to any attempt of transfering the group from the Cairari region.
