Portugal has colonized 6 countries which are now independent. The Madeira was the first country colonized by Portugal.
In this picture you can see which countries where colonized by Portugal in South America and who they were colonized by. As you can see Brazil was colonized by Portugal and the rest of the countries were mainly colonized by the Spanish.

On the map above we can see the zoomed in version of brazil to the specific area where the Yanomami tribe is located and the areas around it. This can give us an idea of where the native people to this land could have been moved and also help us understand how much of the tribe was affected by the Portuguese colonization.
