The aborigines Ava Guarani have been in the region of Iguassu Falls since the era of the Spanish colonisation. Their huts were near where today is the Itaipu power plant, and therefore because of the formation of the reservoir, they were moved and resettled in a reserve located in the city of Sao Miguel do Iguazu, 80 Km from the town centre of Foz do Iguazu.
In this village there are around 256 aborigines, among men, women and children, all of them attended by FUNAI and Social Service of the city of Sao Miguel do Iguazu.
On previous request made at the City hall of Sao Miguel do Iguazu it is possible to watch a presentation of the AVA GUARANI Choral, who show their culture through music and dance.
