Tribes in the Amazon Rainforest
Hundreds of years ago, many Indians and indigenous people lived in the Amazon. They mainly lived along the river, where canoes made transport easy. Many of these people died from diseases that were brought to South America by European explorers and colonists. Other people died from being imprisoned. Today, there are fewer people than years ago but some of these indigenous people still live there today.
There are a lot of tribes that live in the Amazon rainforests that have different cultures and traditions. For example: Yanomami tribes are the largest tribe in the Amazon today and they have different traditions from the Caboclos, Witoto, Manioc and the Kayapo tribes. The Caboclos live in the Amazon too. They are very skilled hunters and are good cooks too. They are wise and can live in the Amazon without any problems.
