AbstractWatson briefly discusses the available historical sources on the Cayuá. No precise material on the period of Jesuit missions in the area exists. Only since the beginning of the 20th century do ethnographically useful data occur. The Cayuá have expanded their agricultural activities due to the loss of territory in which game animals and fish occur, and due to the introduction of metal tools which make work in the fields easier. At the same time they have taken up employment as agricultural laborers with Neo-Brazilians. This has led to the introduction of many industrially manufactured goods, and also to an individualization of the production and consumption pattern.
