Four major groups of people make up the population of Brazil:

Native American in the north-west border regions
Portuguese whose ancestors colonized Brazil in the 1500’s
Africans whose ancestors were brought to Brazil as slaves
European and Asian immigrants who came to Brazil in the 1800’s and now make up nearly half of the population of Brazil
