Guarani M'byá

Louis Au


The Guarani were some of the first indigenous peoples that the Europeans came into contact with when arriving in South America over 500 years ago. In present-day Brazil, there are roughly 46,000 Guarani spread throughout seven states. The M’byá is one of the three main groups of native Guarani people, numbering around 6,000. This series of photographs documents the M’byá people living in the outer limits of São Paulo.
