Abstract. In the present paper, it is shown how the Kaiapó Indians of Central Brazil traditionally managed to survive in an ecologically unfavorable habitat, and such while maintaining village populations of no less than 3000 indians. It is also shown how the more or less permanent contacts with our society have affected their traditional pattern of constant movement between a series of villages spread over a huge area.
