Coroados, a primitive Brazilian people, formerly dominant about the head waters of the Rio Embotetin, where they were at constant warfare with the powerful Guaicuru nation. Both sexes went naked, and they were troglodytes, living in caves and the rocky recesses of the mountains. Later some became civilised, and built themselves huts four or five feet high. Some bands of Coroados are still met in various parts of the interior, where they are regarded as a common enemy by all the other natives.
