PEOPLE & CULTURE

Bonito

A diversified city

With an estimated population of 18,000 habitants, Bonito exploded from a small village to a prosperous touristic town in Brasil. Various are the cultural influences, coming from the first indigenous inhabitants to the later ranch settlers of the surrounding areas.

Among the several indigenous people and tribes from Mato Grosso do Sul state (like the Terenas, Guatós and Guarani-kaiowá), we must mention the Kadiwéus, who have their own territory (100,000 ha) between the cities of Bonito and Jardim. Descendent from the Mbaya-Guaicurus, the famous “Índios Cavaleiros” (Horseman Indians), the Kadiwéus are admired for their manual work with clay, producing beautiful handmade pottery characterized by colored geometric draws, with dyes being extracted from nature.
