research paper will delve into the topic of cannibalism in native tribes of Brazil during the Portuguese colonization of the South American country. My research only the topic yielded very interesting results. Some scholars suggest that cannibalism (in the instances involving the Tupinamba tribe and their ritualistic practices) didn't even occur.

grasp the colonization of Brazil, one must first take a look at the different global forces that shaped the settlement and growth of Brazil. Beginning with the first inhabitants of Brazil in order to fully understand how it all began, then moving on to when the Portuguese arrived in 1500, and finally understanding how Brazil gained its independence will successfully explain how different global forces shaped the settlement and growth of Brazil.
