[German Version] The Cabanagem uprising, begun in 1832 and bloodily put down in 1849, was a revolt of local caboclos (catechumens) of Indian and African descent against the Portuguese colonial regime, which ruled the entire lower Amazon (Brazil).

When the missionaries were expelled in 1759, the disastrous results of these policies b…

[German Version] includes significant portions of Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Colombia, and Venezuela. It is not geographically homogeneous but comprises two ecosystems. The first, upland that is never flooded ( terra firme), constitutes 98% of the area of Amazonia. The second, better known, is lowland, the so-called várzea; it consists of alluvial riverbeds and channels, igarapés, and smaller watercourses. Even today this complex network of waterways is – apart from the airplane – practically the only means of access to “historical” Amazonia. In some places the várzea is very narrow…
