Xerente woman

Xerente (alternate Sherenté, Xerentes, and Xerénte) are an indigenous people of Brazil living in Tocantins.

They are a Central Jê people related to the Xavante. They maintained generally "peaceful" relations with outsiders from the nineteenth century onward.[1] Their villages were traditionally built in a semi-circular fashion, but the society has largely assimilated Brazilian standards of organization.[2] That stated as of 2007 use of the native language among the 1813 members is universal with most being monolingual until age 5.[3]
