The indigenous peoples of the Amazon comprise a large number of distinct ethnic groups who inhabited Brazil's present territory prior to its discovery by the Portuguese around 1500. The first Portuguese explorers called them Indios (Indians), a name that is still used today in Brazil. At the time of European discovery, the indigenous peoples were traditionally mostly semi-nomadic tribes who subsisted on hunting, fishing, gathering, and migrant agriculture. Many of the estimated 2000 nations and tribes, which existed in 1500, died out as a consequence of the European settlement and many were assimilated into the Brazilian population. Only a few tribes still survive in their original culture in remote areas of the Amazon Rainforest. Delta celebrates one of the World's enduring and unchanged cultures with the Indios Limited Edition.
