After exploring the hidden truths behind the culture, I have discovered this: The cultural identity of the Brazilian community is far more diverse and dynamic than what is portrayed in society and the media. One of the most important contributing aspects to a community’s culture is its history. Brazil was discovered by Pedro Álvares Cabral on April 22,1500. From that point on, the Portuguese ruled over this land, focusing greatly on its vast sugar-cane plantations.
1.1 Overview of Brazil Brazil is one of the largest countries of South America and Latin American region. The country got freedom and became an independent nation in 1822 from the rule of Portugal. Exploiting vast natural resources and a large labour pool, Brazil became Latin America's leading economic power by the 1970s. Being one of the largest and most populous countries in South America, the country has overcome more than half a century of military intervention in the governance of the country to pursue industrial and agricultural growth and development of the interior geographic of the country. Brazil is the world's fifth-largest country, not only by geographical area and but also by population.
The first thing that I will talk about Brazil is the geography. Brazil is located in Eastern South America, bordering the Atlantic Ocean. Brazil is the largest country in South America, and in the southern hemisphere. The climate is mostly tropical, but is temperate in the south. Brazil is known to have terrain that is mostly flat to lowlands in the north, but have hills and mountains by the coastal belt.
The Brazilian highlands make up over half of the countries landmass and have steep cliffs, plateaus, ravines, and hills. The costal lowlands are made of swamps, lagoons, dunes, and sandy beaches, which are home to the former Capital city of Rio de Janeiro. As the largest country on the continent, it borders every country except for Chile and Ecuador. The majority of its population is concentrated in the costal lowland and the Brazilian Highlands that are home to the current Capital city of Brasilia.
Brazil, by both land mass and population, is the fifth largest country across the globe. The country is divided into five regions becoming one of the most geographically and culturally diverse nations on the earth earning the nickname "land of contrasts. " The different areas of the country all have many different cultures within often expressed through artifacts as well as traditions and ceremonies. Nationally, the culture can be expressed through many various forms such as language, literature, art, music, and religion. The blended and diverse culture of Brazil helped amplify many celebrations around the world.
Have you ever heard that every year the Amazon Rainforest is losing 78 million acres of land every year? Well it’s sadly true, the reason it’s happening is because of all the jobs in Brazil. That’s what’s hurting it and destroying the Forest, people are trying to do everything to get back the Amazon Rainforest. In 1960 Brazil was the 11th largest economy in the world, everyone in a very populated country can’t be rich.
However, despite rapid deforestation there have been long drawn efforts made by the domestic and global actors for forest conservation and curbing practices of deforestation. This has led to a tussle between pro-development and pro-environment policy networks trying to influence policies which directly affect the Amazon Rainforest and its inhabitants. The paper will also analyze 4 stages in the history of Brazil from 1960s to now in light of such policy networks. Causes of Deforestation (1) Rapid Population Growth Studies show Amazonian populations have high intrinsic growth rates, which has led to an increase in the population
Introduction Brazil's independence takes place in a relatively short period of time. Which can be officially placed between February 18, 1822 and March 8, 1824, which, compared to other wars of independence in different parts of the world, we can say that it is smaller, and also comparing the way it is carried out After this independence, we can say that, although the conflict was not totally peaceful, it was a less bloody war, in comparison with the majority of the wars of the other Spanish-American countries. The most important issues about Brazilian independence, which takes place as a result of the Napoleonic wars, will be discussed.

Racial whitening in Brazil stemmed from the belief that Black, or African, people were inferior and subservient to White, or Westernized, people. Racial whitening began in the late 1800s and continued until 1914. The goal of racial whitening was to eventually eradicate the black race and have a country of white Brazilians. White men reproduced with Black women to create mixed, or mulatto, offspring. Those offspring would then reproduce with Whites, and so on until Brazil had a population of only white people.
d., 1989). Scholars who endorse this term maintain that Brazilians do not regard each other through the lens of race, and that therefore race is not a relevant consideration in the study of social inequality. Abdias Nascimento’s ideas stand in direct opposition to this dominant discourse of racial democracy. His writings affirm the continuing importance of race in analyses of political inequality. He also draws attention to the important differences in cultural practice and worldview that emerge from the African ancestry of Brazil’s Afro-Brazilian population in ways that dominant political discourses, in Brazil and elsewhere, are not likely to.
