    Brazilians are mostly descendants of Portuguese settlers, post-colonial immigrant groups, enslaved Africans and Brazil's indigenous peoples. The main historic waves of immigration to Brazil have occurred from the 1820s well into the 1970s, most of the settlers were Portuguese, Italians, Germans, and Spaniards, with significant minorities of Japanese, Dutch, Armenians, Romani, Greeks, Poles, Russians, Ukrainians, and Levantine Arabs.

    Note:The ethnic composition of Brazilians is not uniform across the country. Although most Brazilians identify as white, mixed or black, genetic studies shows that the overwhelming majority of the citizens are actually triracial at some degree 1. Due to its large influx of European immigrants in the 19th and 20th centuries, São Paulo, and the Southern Region have a White majority (mostly Europeans of Italian, Portuguese, German, Austrian, Swiss, Slavic, Dutch and Spanish ancestry). Rio de Janeirohas a sizable white population slightly over 50% of the total population. The other two Southeastern states, Minas Gerais and Espírito Santo, are around 50% White (the Southeast region also includes Levantine Arabs).São Paulo has the largest absolute number with 30 million Whites, followed by Minas Gerais, Rio Grande do Sul, Rio de Janeiro and Paraná, while Santa Catarina, where 86% of the population has European phenotype, reaches the highest percentage. The cities of São Paulo, Rio de Jane...

    Genetic studies have shown the Brazilian population as a whole to have European, African and Native Americans components.

    The first people to come to Brazil came around 9,000 B.C. That group of indigenous people is often called the South American Indians and probably came from North America. They practiced hunting, foraging, and farming.Over thousands of years, many different indigenous peoples were living there. Pedro Álvares Cabral was the first European to see Brazil. He saw it in 1500. He was from Portugal and the Portuguese kingdom claimed Brazil. Soon, Portugal colonized Brazil and created colonies all along the coastline. They began to import black slaves from Africa and force them to work. Because of the violence of the slave masters, many of these slaves would run away into the forest and create their own communities called quilombos. In the late 1500s and early 1600s, the Dutch and the French tried to take land in Brazil. Dutch, French, and Portuguese started moving inland further than the Treaty of Tordesillas said they could. This caused some fights with the Spaniards (people from Spain) an...

    Seguindo as regras gramaticais para formação de gentílicos, o correto seria: brasilianos ou brasilienses. Brasileiro alude a um ofício ou profissão (tal qual "verdureiro", "engenheiro", "pedreiro") e, nas raízes históricas, estudiosos têm escrito que referia-se ao comerciante, geralmente português, do pau-brasil, na época do Brasil Colônia,[9] passando, eventualmente, a ser nome pátrio (por causas de várias naturezas e com muitas teorias acerca do assunto).[10] Durante os primórdios da construção do país, tornou-se comum designar brasileiro o português ou o estrangeiro estabelecido no Brasil, brasiliense o natural do Brasil e brasiliano o indígena.[11] Como exemplo, tomemos o livro Romance de Gregório de Matos, composto no século XVII, em que "brasileiro" serve para designar os "naturais" explorados: "os brasileiros são bestas/ e estão sempre a trabalhar/ toda a vida por manterem/ maganos de Portugal...".[11] Contudo, com a emancipação política durante o Primeiro Reinado, o substant...

    A população brasileira é formada principalmente por descendentes de povos indígenas, colonos portugueses, escravos africanos e diversos grupos de imigrantes que se estabeleceram no Brasil, sobretudo entre 1820 e 1970. A maior parte dos imigrantes era de italianos e portugueses, mas houve significante presença de alemães, espanhóis, japoneses sírio-libaneses,[18] poloneses e ucranianos. Ressalta-se também que uma pesquisa genética realizada pela Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais apontou que em torno de 19% dos brasileiros brancos naturais da região nordeste são portadores do haplogrupo 2, o qual é menos comum em Portugal. O estudo levanta a teoria que isso pode ser resultado da presença holandesa na região.[19] Segundo o historiador Eduardo Fonseca Jr, 80 mil holandeses estiveram no Brasil durante a invasão e alguns nordestinos são descendentes deles.[20] O Instituto Brasileiro de Geografia e Estatística (IBGE) classifica o povo brasileiro entre cinco grupos: branco, preto, pardo,...

    Na época do Descobrimento, é estimado que falavam-se mais de mil línguas no Brasil. Atualmente, esses idiomas estão reduzidos a 180 línguas. Das 180 línguas, apenas 24, ou 13%, têm mais de mil falantes; 108 línguas, ou 60%, têm entre cem e mil falantes; enquanto que 50 línguas, ou 27%, têm menos de 100 falantes e metade destas, ou 13%, têm menos de 50 falantes, o que mostra que grande parte desses idiomas estão em sério risco de extinção. Nos primeiros anos de colonização, as línguas indígena...


    Sendo constitucionalmente um estado laico, o Brasil não possui religião oficial e a discriminação aos seguidores de determinada religião é ilegal. Apesar disso, a população do país é tradicionalmente seguidora da Igreja Católica Apostólica Romanae é inegável a influência de tal religião em vários momentos do passado e até mesmo do presente. Nos dias de hoje o Brasil é considerado o maior país católico do mundo em números absolutos. A predominância do catolicismo, entretanto, deve ser relativi...
