Abstract The Guaraní live in lowland South America. They are heterogeneous wide-ranging groups inhabiting sub-tropical regions from the Andes to the Atlantic Ocean. This file consists of 9 documents with a time span of coverage from approximately the fifteenth century to the early 1990s. The geographic focus of the file is rather diffuse ranging from southern Brazil, southern Mato Grosso, Paraguay, and the border areas of Argentina, Paraguay, and Brazil. The best general coverage of all Guaraní groups is that found in Métraux. Schaden's material concentrates on the Guaraní subgroups of Mbyá Ñandevá, and Kayová; Hanke and the Watsons focus their attention on the Cayua (Kaiowá). The specific location of the Watson's fieldwork centers on the village of Taquapir. The more recent studies by Clastres and Ganson deal primarily with the historical Guaraní population in Paraguay and the mission areas on the borders of Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay. Reed's work on the Chiripá of Paraguay (1981-1984) is an exploration of the various social and economic factors which has permitted this group to maintain their own distinct culture and society even after many years of contact with the dominant Paraguayan society. Major subject coverage in this file is on acculturation in various forms -- in terms of the Guaraní economy, religion, material culture, community and family structure, music, and folklore.
