Northern Region

The Northern Region is the largest Region of Brazil and corresponding to 45.27% of the national territory. It is the least inhabited of the country and contributes with a minor percentage in the national GDP and population. It is composed by the states of Acre, Amapa, Amazonas, Para, Rondonia, Roraima and Tocantins.

The population in those States are largely made up of Caboclos/Mamelucos, descendants of Indigenous/Native Americans mixed with Portuguese, Spanish or other white European ethnicity group. Minorities are Indigenous/Native Americans (non mixed), Mulattoes (people of European mixed with Black ancestry), Pardo (commonly used to refer Brazilians mixed with varied racial ancestries), white Brazilians direct/indirect descendants of Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, French, German, Dutch/Flemish, and minority from English, Scottish, Irish, Polish and other European ethnicity groups, Cafuzos who are descendants of sub-Saharan black ancestry and Indigenous/Native American, and Brazilians descendant direct/indirect of Japanese, South-Korean, Chinese, Indonesian and Indiers (people whose ancestors arrived in the Guiana’s from (in that time) British India, and migrated to Brazil).
