The Peabiru Path allowed connection and exchange between different cultures and indigenous civilizations of South America, such as the Guaraní and the Incas, over great distances. We already know that this approximately 4,000-mile (6,437.38 km) trail connected the Atlantic Ocean to the Andes and witnessed an exchange between diverse native cultures for centuries before the arrival of Europeans.


Dakila Pesquisas researcher Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira explains: "The Peabiru Path is an invaluable testament to the mobility, connectivity, and ingenuity of Indigenous peoples; it shows how these civilizations established communication and transport networks on an impressive scale, well before colonization European."


Since the 1980s, Dakila Pesquisas has been at the forefront of the research, diligently mapping this transcontinental corridor that linked the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific. This system of interconnected routes holds profound significance for native cultures, and Dakila's pioneering efforts are dedicated to unraveling its mysteries.


Urandir shares a revelation from Dakila's research: "Our findings suggest that these paths may have been established by civilizations that predate the indigenous peoples we are familiar with." This unexpected discovery adds a layer of intrigue to the historical narrative of the Peabiru Path.


Dakila's team has already found promising traces of this route in several South and Southeast Brazil states. And now, using technologies, Urandir intends to reconstruct the history of this legacy, revealing surprising discoveries about the origins and sophistication of these indigenous civilizations.


“Lost cities and ancient cultures are the focus of our explorations, and Dakila is leading this journey responsibly, revisiting a historical heritage that has long been neglected,” says Urandir.
