WHAT DOES GAUCHO MEAN IN ENGLISH?

gaucho

Gaucho

Gaucho or gaúcho are residents of the South American pampas, Gran Chaco, or Patagonian grasslands, found principally in parts of Argentina, Southern Brazil, Uruguay, Paraguay, eastern and southern Bolivia and Southern Chile. In Brazil, gaúcho is also the main demonym of the people from the state of Rio Grande do Sul. Gaucho is an equivalent of the North American "cowboy". Like the North American word cowboy, the Chilean huaso, the Cuban guajiro, the Venezuelan or Colombian llanero, the Puerto Rican jibaro, and the Mexican charro, the term often connotes the 19th century more than the present day; then gauchos made up the majority of the rural population, herding cattle on the vast estancias, and practicing hunting as their main economic activities. There are several hypotheses concerning the origin of the term. It may derive from the Spanish term chaucho. The first recorded use of the term dates to Argentine independence in 1816.
