Welcome to Brazilian Minute, brought to you by the Consulate-General of Brazil in Chicago and the Brazilian Foreign Ministry’s Cultural Department.
Welcome to Brazil’s Bicentennial year and welcome to The Brazilian Minute, a new weekly feature that will introduce you to Brazil’s greatest stories about inspiring individuals, unforgettable places, and historic events.
Who invented the wristwatch? Where did Brazil proclaim Independence? Why do Brazilians speak Portuguese?
Brazil is an American nation, just like ours. It’s a melting pot nation, home to a multitude of peoples and cultures, all blended together to become uniquely Brazilian.
My goal is to bring you stories that will inspire, entertain, and most of all help you to appreciate Brazil’s first 200 years as a nation, its people, its culture, and its future.
