Introduction / History
The last five survivors of the so-called Akuntsu live in small villages close to each other, in the forests of the Omerê stream, a tributary of the left bank of the Corumbiara in southeastern Rondônia. The area is a small reserve forest that once belonged to a particular farm banned by Funai in late 1980. It is characterized by equatorial forest land, reasonable incidence of small hills, a few springs and, like other forest reserves in Rondônia, is seriously threatened by agropastoral fronts.
