Over half a million Brazilians are indigenous, and millions more have some Amerindian ancestry, and indigenous influence extends to our culture, food and language. In fact, Tupi-Guarani was the most widely spoken language in Brazil for 200 years, and there are still hundreds of words in Brazilian Portuguese which are derived from this language.
