Private Tour: Native Indigenous Tribe In São Paulo – Culture, Customs, Dances

We invite you to take a journey to be introduced to the visitor-friendly tribe of Tenondê Porã who are eager to show their culture, customs, colorful gatherings & dances.

In the southern end of São Paulo in a 1:30h drive, live in a demarcated area 1.2 thous Guarani Native Indians who preserve many of their ancient traditions and speak their own language also called “Guarani”.

Subsistence agriculture is practiced, which provides daily food. There are cassava, beans, corn, banana, tangerine, orange and mango.

Unlike tribes from remote north of Brazil that have greater visibility, urban Indians often struggle to be seen and heard due to the proximity to the largest urban areas in the country, but despite the hardships they graciously allow guests to have a rare glimpse into their life and culture.

The highlight of your visit will most likely be meeting and interacting with the Guarani people. Offer them respect and dignity and they’ll reward you in return with great experiences.
