Introduction / History

The Arara region is comprised of an area between the Branco and Guariba Rivers in the Amazon rainforest of Brazil. They are also known as the Macaw people. During the 19th century the area that comprised of these people were overtaken by industrialists with the intention of exploiting the rainforest for the rubber and its products. This left the Macaw people with no rights to the land and their livelihood robbed by the invaders. The people in this region are in three villages near the river.
