People have inhabited modern-day Brazil for over 10,000 years. They had developed several distinct cultures before the arrival of Europeans in the 1500's. Most indigenous people died quickly after European contact due to Old World diseases, like smallpox. Indigenous peoples may face discrimination and denial of rights because of their ethnicity or status.
