Transcript of BRAZIL
Brazil had many rich mineral reserves, including iron,copper and gold. Brazil was also a major supplier of sugar and gold after it was introduced. Due to their success in these exported items a large part of Brazil's income had increased.
Brazil did not have a recognized religion before settlers arrived. Roman Catholicism has been Brazil's main religion since the beginning of the 16th century. All Portuguese settlers and Brazilians were requires to follow the Roman Catholic faith and they were also forced to pay taxes to the church.Brazil has the largest number of Catholics in the world.
Who Lived There
-At the time of first European contact, some of the indigenous peoples were traditionally semi-nomadic tribes who subsisted on hunting, fishing, gathering, and agriculture.
-Many of the estimated 2,000 nations and tribes which existed in the 16th century died out as a consequence of the European settlement.

What Does The Flag Mean?
-When the first European colonists arrived in 1500, what is now Brazil was inhabited by an estimated 11 million Indians, living in about 2,000 tribes
-The territory that comprises modern Brazil had a native population in the millions, divided among hundreds of tribes and language groups.
The flag is green, symbolic of Brazil's lush fields and forests. Its primary feature is a large yellow diamond, symbolic of Brazil's wealth in gold, and in its center floats a blue celestial globe
In the center of the diamond is a blue globe with 27 five-pointed white stars. Each star represents one of each of the states in the Federal District, which are arranged in the same pattern as the Brazil night sky.
.There was one very important group, called the Tupi. The Tupi consisted of a few distinct groups, which oftentimes battled against others. Warriors captured in battle that were considered brave and strong would be eaten in a feast, due to them believing that their strengths would be absorbed. The strength absorbed would be then stored and let out during there next fight.
Brazilians were very hostile towards other tribes within Brazil and new settlers, so we believe they would fight against the new settlers however they would not fight cohesively thus dying off from disease and battle
