They comprise only 0.4% of the total population, residing throughout the Brazilian mainland, mainly in the northern, central and western parts. These Aboriginal Brazilians are direct descendents of the original inhabitants of the nation.
Diverse racial groups form a substantial part of the Brazil Population. They mainly comprise the Portuguese, African, Guarani and Tupi who migrated in large numbers to Brazilian mainland areas from 19th century onwards. In the later stages, several Europeans from Lebanon, Syria, Italy, Germany, Spain, Poland, Ukraine as well as the Japanese, Chinese and Koreans came in and settled in the country, offering it a multi-national recognition in the true sense of the term.
Brazilian Population distinguishes the local people on the basis of their skin tans and original nationality. Hence one finds that the country is full of Brazilians having Indian, European and African ancestries. Again, they are also segregated into whites and blacks depending upon their skin colors. These are handful of people who compose quite a considerable part of the national population.
The remaining part of the Brazil Population consists of foreigners like the Arabs, Germans, Poles, Dutch, Syrians, Italians, Spaniards, Lebanese and a handful of Portuguese. Either permanent settlers or temporary residents on the land, they contribute much in increasing the total head counts in Brazil.
