 Ethnic visibility of German colonization in São Pedro de Alcântara nowadays

February 2021

          It was with the arrival of 635 German immigrants in 1829 that the first nucleus of colonization of the Pathway of Muleteers between Desterro and Lages was founded. These pioneer colonizers were mostly from places near the Moselle river in the Hunsrück and Eifel region which is currently part of the Rhineland-Palatinate State in southwest Germany.

          The immigrants settled in the valleys of the Maruim river and formed the Colony of São Pedro de Alcântara that was the first nucleus of German colonization in Santa Catarina. From then on other immigrants arrived and built their new Heimat there. Later other nucleus were created: in 1847 the Colony Santa Isabel, in 1854 the Military Colony Santa Teresa, in 1860 the National Colony Angelina and the Colony Teresópolis, etc. The arrival of immigrants was part of a national colonization policy that took place during the Brazilian Empire whose main objective was to occupy the demographic void of vacant lands.
