Brazilians are a ethnic group and nation native to Brazil. Many Brazilians are mixed race of Portuguese, African and indigenous ancestry. Minorities in Brazil include Afro-Brazilians (50.7 percent: 43.1 pardo or mixed ethnicity, and 7.6 per cent preta or black) and Asian Brazilians 1.1 per cent (including Japanese, Chinese and Korean). The Indigenous people live in every state of Brazil and represent 305 different tribes and 274 indigenous languages.[1]
