After the truce was ratified, Maranhão rebelled against the Dutch control and the Portuguese and Brazilians joined together to help the Maranhão. Word reached the government in Pernambuco, which was in charge of maintaining order, and aid was sent. Pernambuco established order once again in Maranhão and the individuals who started the rebellion were captured. While the Count was occupied with the situation in Maranhão, he received word that troops were sent to São Tomé. The natives welcomed these newcomers and so a member of the Supreme Council was sent to settle the dispute. The chapter then continues to describe the various groups of inhabitants that lived in Brazil. Also described are the native tribes such as the Tapuyas. The Tapuyas are nomads and cannibals. Their courtship rituals and childbirth rituals are also described. These rituals vary depending on the current king.
