Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
Watson 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.
