Caiçaras are the traditional inhabitants of the coastal regions of the southeastern and southern Brazil. They descended from indigenous people, Europeans and Africans. Their traditional way of life based on subsistence agriculture, hunting and fishing is threatened by real estate speculation, restrictive laws and declining fish stocks.
