Description[edit | edit source]

The Tupi are a native Brazilian people related to the Guarani who inhabited the modern Brazilian states of Paraiba, Pernambuco, Ceara, Rio Grande do Norte, Alagoas, Sergipe and others as well. Their chiefdoms were destroyed through Portuguese slave-raids, the creation of mission-villages, and disease. The Tupi intermarried with African slaves and Europeans alike and a great many Brazilian place names are derived from Tupi words.
