These two young girls are obviously best friends and probably sisters. They did everything together, including smiling and giggling at the same time. They are indicative of the children you will meet at Boca da Valeria. Despite their austere culture (perhaps because of it), they all were healthy and happy. The people in this village are Caboclo Indians. The term means copper-colored skin. They are descendants of ancestors who were a mix of indigenous Brazilian and European, predominately Portuguese.
