Brazil is an amalgam of races: native Indian, African, and European. The European influence is predominantly Portuguese and dates back to the discovery of Brazil. The Dutch came and left during the great colonial period, while other immigrants didn't arrive until nearly the end of the nineteenth century, mostly to replace the West African labor force brought to Brazil in the Portuguese ships. Germans settled in the colder South; Japanese and Arabs settled in Sao Paulo, along with a million and a half Italians who migrated to Rio and Sao Paulo by 1880. Some worked on the sugar, coffee, and cocoa plantations, some labored on ranches and farms, and others moved into commerce; United States citizens came too. In a thriving colony called Americana, a couple of hours from Sao Paulo, one can see pink-freckled, blue-eyed, blond children-descendants of North Americans Southerners who migrated near the end of the Civil War.
