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.
previous request made at the City hall of Sao Miguel do Iguazu
