When a group of young men from Kannano village decided to start their own band, they had no idea what it would take to get on the street.
But they knew they needed a name.
“We were looking for a name for our band,” says the 19-year-old, who didn’t want to be named for fear of reprisals from the gangs.
“And I thought it would be interesting to go by Kannana, which is a very good name for us.
It’s a name that’s really well known.”
The Kannanas were born and raised in a village in the jungle of the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais.
Today the group of about 60 is the biggest in the country.
Kannan tribespeople are renowned for their bold personalities.
They can be violent and boast a culture that mixes traditional shamanism and the occult.
But the young men of Kannaniya say their roots in the region go back to the early 1900s when a group called the Gavadzali tribe started its own band called Kannannana.
Now known as the Kannans, the group grew out of the Gaviatsana tribe, which has been a majorstay of the Amazon for centuries.
The Gaviata Indians lived in the jungles and rivers of northern Brazil, until they settled in the cities of Manaus and Porto Alegre in the early 20th century.
The Gaviatas came to dominate the region around Manaus in the 1930s.
Today they make up about 20 percent of the indigenous population.
But in the 1980s, tensions between the Gavis and the Gannanas over land ownership led to a rebellion, which led to massacres and forced evictions.
In the 1980-81 oil crisis, the Gvas took control of the oil fields that had been earmarked for them, and were able to start the Kaniyan, which became the name for the region in 1990.
Kaniyan is an indigenous word, meaning a place that is in the middle of a river, a place where you are protected from the elements and where people live in peace.
The Kaniyans started playing a major role in the regional economy in the 1990s, with its production of bananas and other crops.
Today it is one of the largest banana producers in Brazil.
Kanna, Kannandana, Kaniya, Kana, and Kaniys are the three main words in the Kanna language, which translates as “land.”
But the roots of the Kana language go back centuries to the Kavadzan, the native tribe that lived in Minas de Goiás, the state capital.
The Kavads are said to have been the first to start building an elaborate, elaborate structure called a kannana that stood as a ceremonial altar.
The kannanas have a long history of living off the land and being nomadic nomads.
They live in villages in the Amazon, where they often work as farm labourers.
They also live in the forest and live in groups of up to 100 people.
But the origins of the language go much further back, according to a book by the Brazilian archaeologist, Paulo Fábio, who also wrote a book on the history of the region.
“I want to say that the origins go back 1,200 years, and that’s why it’s a Kannanian language,” he says.
“This language was the language of the nomads of the jungle.
This language was used by the nomadic people.
The language of our ancestors.”
Fábios has spent his life studying the language.
He believes that the Kanoans are descended from the Ganiyan tribes who arrived in the 14th century, when the area was still called Kanesha.
The name Ganiya is from the word for “forest” and is derived from the Greek word for the land, Kanoia, and the word Kana means “forest.”
“There is a lot of evidence that the Ganesha were nomadic, so it was natural for the language to be different from the other languages,” Fá, a professor at the University of Sao Paulo, tells National Geographic.
“The Kanoan language, on the other hand, is not a language that belongs to any other language.
And it’s different from languages like Portuguese or German.”
This is one reason why the Kanesas are so passionate about their language.
The group of Kaniytans is so attached to the language, they’re using it as their primary language.
“The Kanesa are very proud of their language and its history,” Fúbios says.
Kana is an amalgam of the languages of Brazil, including Kannanos language.
There are five different dialects, which are spoken by
