Ayoreo - History

Information gleaned from sources that describe contacts with peoples of the northern Chaco can be divided into four time periods. The first includes information regarding contact up to 1691, a time marked by the beginning of Jesuit religious instruction. The second period, lasting from 1691 until the expulsion of the Jesuits in 1767, corresponds to the period in which this instruction was carried out. The third period comprises the time from 1767 to approximately 1940, the beginning of the fourth period, marked by renewed Catholic and Protestant evangelization, which is ongoing.
