Colinas do Sul

It’s in Colinas - west of the Chapada - that we find the Indigenous tribe Ava-Canoeiros Reserve, recently demarcated and with a population of very few.

The History of Colinas do Sul started in the 1950’s with the occupation of Almecegas Stream margins until the district of Lages (part of Cavalcante) was transferred to Colinas. In 1955, Mr. Nilo Passos took over the role of sub-mayor of the city-to-come.

The name Colinas (‘Hills’) was given due to its landscape.

Placed between the Chapada dos Veadeiros and Mesa’s Mountain Range Lake, northeast of Goias State, Colinas do Sul borders Cavalcante at north; Niquelandia at south; Campinau and Minacu at west; and Alto Paraiso to the east.

It is around 480km from State capital Goiania, and about 270km from Brasilia.
