Abstract: this study investigated strontium isotopes in the dental enamel of 32 human skeletons from forte marechal luz sambaqui (shellmound), santa catarina, brazil, aiming at identifying local and non-local individuals. the archeological site presents pot sherds in the uppermost archeological layers. dental enamel was also examined from specimens of terrestrial fauna (87sr/86sr = 0. 71046 to 0. 71273) and marine fauna (87sr/86sr = 0. 70917). the 87sr/86sr isotope ratio for individuals classified as locals ranged from 0. 70905 to 0. 71064 and was closer to the isotope ratio of the seawater than to the ratio of the terrestrial fauna, indicating a strong influence of marine strontium on the inhabitants of this sambaqui. the results indicate the existence of three non-local individuals (87sr/86sr = 0. 70761 to 0. 70835), buried in both the level without pottery and the layer with pottery, possibly originated from the santa catarina plateau, close to the municipality of lages, or from the curitiba plateau. the occurrence of a slight difference between the isotope ratios of local individuals buried in the archeological layer without pottery, when compared to those in the layer with pottery, suggests a possible change in dietary patterns between these two moments in the site's occupation

Abstract: We studied 173 individuals from Queixadinha, a small village located in a territory previously occupied by the now extinct Botocudo Amerindian nation. Pedigree analysis revealed 74 unrelated matrilineages, which were screened for Amerindian mtDNA lineages by restriction fragment length polymorphism. A cosmopolitan control group was composed of 100 individuals from surrounding cities. All Amerindian lineages identified had their hypervariable segment HVSI sequenced, yielding 13 Amerindian haplotypes in Queixadinha, nine of which were not present in available databanks or in the literature. Among these haplotypes, there was a significant excess of haplogroup C (70%) and absence of haplogroup A lineages, which were the most common in the control group. The novelty of the haplotypes and the excess of the C haplogroup suggested that we might indeed have identified Botocudo lineages. To validate our strategy, we studied teeth extracted from 14 ancient skulls of Botocudo Amerindians from the collection of the National Museum of Rio de Janeiro. We recovered mtDNA sequences from all the teeth, identifying only six different haplotypes (a low haplotypic diversity of 0.8352 ± 0.0617), one of which was present among the lineages observed in the extant individuals studied.These findings validate the technique of homopatric targeting as a useful new strategy to study the peopling and colonization of the New World, especially when direct analysis of genetic material is not possible.When Europeans arrived in Brazil in 1500, they found more than two million Amerindians [1], many of them inhabiting the eastern part of the country. Five hundred years later, in the 2000 Brazilian census, there remained only 734 thousand Amerindians in Brazil, almost all of them living in the northern (Amazon region) and the western states. We know almost nothing about the genetic makeup of the once numerous Amerindian populations that lived in the eastern part of Brazil. Even the historical evidence th

Journal of Anthropology , 2014, DOI: 10.1155/2014/729120
Abstract: In the early 17th century, French and Portuguese colonizers and Jesuit priests settled in the state of Maranh?o and made contact with the Guajajara, an ethnic group that lived along the margins of the Pindaré River. The Guajajara maintained contact with Brazilian national society over the centuries, including with Brazilian admixed populations, and with African slaves that flocked towards the region from the 18th century onwards. The present study investigates the origins of this admixture using mitochondrial genetic variability. The bones of 12 individuals investigated, which are currently part of the collection of the National Museum, were tested for genetic diversity. aDNA was extracted by the phenol-chloroform method and by DNA IQ (Promega, Madison, WI, USA). Amplification of the HVS I region was performed by PCR, followed by direct sequencing using the Big Dye kit (Life Technologies, Foster City, CA, USA). This region was found to represent haplogroups of Amerindians (A, C, and D) and Africans (L, L1b, L1c, and L3). The presence of African haplogroups in Guajajara bones from as early as the 18th century is consistent with historical and anthropological data, suggesting the admixture with Africans and/or Afrodescendants. Therefore, this study demonstrates that women with African haplogroups were introduced into the Guajajara population. 1. Introduction 1.1. The Guajajara Among the indigenous peoples that still inhabit the vast South American continent are the Guajajara, an example of ethnic resistance after four centuries of contact with European, Brazilian, and African populations. The Guajajara are also referred to as the Tenetehara-Guajajara of Maranh?o to distinguish them from the Tenetehara-Tembé of Pará, and they belong to the Tupi linguistic family. According to Nimuendaju [1], during the 19th century, the Guajajara lived along the Pindaré, Grajaú, and Mearim rivers (Figure 1), an area that they had occupied since pre-Columbian times according to Wagley and Galv?o [2]. Figure 1: Current distribution of the studied Guajajara villages of Kamiranga and Januária (in red) and the quilombola populations (in black) in the state of Maranh?o, Brazil (adapted from [ 59]). A more detailed analysis of the population’s demography revealed that although their population size had been severely reduced in the past, it recovered significantly during at least two historical periods and is an extraordinary example of demographic expansion. Another particularity of these groups is their substantial level of admixture [3], both with Africans and Europeans.

Physis: Revista de Saúde Coletiva , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/s0103-73312012000200008
Abstract: A partir de 2003, foi proposta a implanta o de um sistema de vigilancia alimentar e nutricional (Sisvan) no ambito do subsistema de saúde indígena, o que tem contado com recursos da Uni o e de um acordo de empréstimo com o Banco Mundial para sua implementa o. O objetivo deste estudo foi analisar quais condicionantes e fatores levaram os gestores do subsistema a reconhecer os deficits nutricionais dos povos indígenas como problema de saúde pública e a escolher o Sisvan como alternativa para enfrentamento da quest o. Esta é uma pesquisa de abordagem qualitativa baseada na proposta analítica de John Kingdon (1984), que se concentra nas fases iniciais do ciclo de uma política pública, quais sejam: a fase de constru o da agenda governamental e a de especifica o de alternativas de solu o. Os resultados evidenciam que, na convergência de um fluxo de problemas sobre as condi es nutricionais dos povos indígenas com ambiente político favorável, abriu-se uma janela de oportunidade para inseguran a alimentar e nutricional desses povos ser reconhecida como problema e ascender à agenda de decis o governamental. Como alternativa de política na área de saúde, os gestores elegeram o Sisvan, proposta já difundida internacionalmente e que no Brasil foi incorporada ao SUS a partir de 1990. O Sisvan foi formalizado em 2006 no subsistema de saúde indígena no nível nacional. The implementation of a food and nutrition surveillance system (Sisvan) aimed at indigenous communities in Brazil was first proposed in 2003 and since then has relied on funds provided by the Brazilian federal government and the World Bank. This study aimed to examine the conditions and factors which led the managers of the indigenous health subsystem to recognize the nutritional deficits of indigenous peoples as a relevant public health problem and the reasons why Sisvan was chosen as an alternative. This is a qualitative study based on analytical perspective of John Kingdon (1984), which focuses on the early stages of the policy cycle, namely: the setting of a political agenda and the specifications of alternatives from which a choice for solution is made. The results show that the convergence of a flow of critical situations related to the nutritional status of indigenous peoples coupled with a favorable political stream opened a "window of opportunity". This led to the situation of nutritional insecurity of these people to be recognized as a problem and become relevant in the government decision agenda. Sisvan, which was an internationally recognized alternative and which had been implemented in

Cadernos de Saúde Pública , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-311X2007001200024
Abstract: this is a comparative bibliometric study of the two main scientific journals in the public health field in brazil: cadernos de saúde pública (csp) and revista de saúde pública (rsp). twenty-four issues of each periodical were analyzed, published from 1996 to 2003, comprising a sample of 819 articles (496 from csp and 323 from rsp). the following elements in the articles were identified and analyzed: thematic area of the article and citation pattern of publications (articles in periodicals, books and/or book chapters, theses/dissertations, internet documents, "gray" literature, and other types of publications). the resulting data showed that the majority of the articles represent the sub-area of "epidemiology". the citation pattern in the journals showed articles in periodicals in first place, followed by citations of books and/or book chapters. papers in the sub-area "social sciences in health" published in csp are exceptions, since books and chapters are the most frequently cited. the authors discuss the implications of the findings for the characterization and evaluation of scientific output in public health in brazil.

Revista Brasileira de Agricultura Irrigada , 2010, DOI: 10.7127/rbai.v4n200030
Abstract: Quando a irriga o está restrita pela disponibilidade limitada de água ou pelo limite da capacidade do sistema de irriga o e a terra é o fator limitante da produ o, a água economizada pela redu o da profundidade de irriga o pode ser utilizada para irrigar um acréscimo de terra. Nesse caso, o problema é determinar uma lamina ótima em rela o à profundidade aplicada e a área a ser irrigada; isto é, procura-se maximizar a receita líquida total sujeita às restri es de recursos pré-fixados e a uma estrutura de pre os e custos pré-determinados. Neste trabalho, apresentamos um procedimento computacional baseado no método barreira logarítmica (MBL) para a procura de intervalos ótimos de irriga o entre a lamina que maximiza a produ o e a lamina que maximiza a receita líquida com limita es hídricas. Foram realizados três experimentos numéricos baseados nas fun es de resposta quadráticas das culturas: algod o, trigo e melancia, para esta última foi considerada uma varia o de pre os e custos de água. Considerando que os intervalos ótimos de irriga o obtidos s o completamente compatíveis com os apresentados na literatura, pode-se concluir que o procedimento computacional e iterativo tipo barreira logarítmica implementado na linguagem octave, constitui uma alternativa confiável na tomada de decis es econ micas que se apresentam em um planejamento ótimo de irriga o com déficit.
