ABOUT:

 

History

Settlement in the area started in March 1928, when José Silvério de Oliveira known as Nhô Jeca, leased the land from José Elias. Many colonists from the south of Brazil settled when the cycle of Yerba mate had ended, dedicating themselves to the logging and swine breeding. The name of the city means rattlesnake in Portuguese. The legend tells that a group of settlers camped one night in the region and they were woken by the sound of a rattle. They found there was a rattlesnake nest in that place.
