WHAT DOES TOCANTINS MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Tocantins

Tocantins

Tocantins is one of the states of Brazil.. It is the newest Brazilian state, formed in 1988 and encompassing what had formerly been the northern part of Goiás. Construction of its capital, Palmas, began in 1989; most of the other cities in the state date to the Portuguese colonial period. Tocantins has been developing slowly since then, building on its hydropower resources: the Araguaia and Tocantins Rivers, which drain the largest watershed that lies entirely inside Brazilian territory. Because it is in the central zone of the country, Tocantins not only has characteristics of the Amazon, but also has open pastures. The Ilha do Bananal, in the southwest of the State, is the largest fluvial island in the world. Tocantins is also home to the Araguaia National Park, the Carajás Indian reservations, and Jalapão state park, which is about 250 kilometres from Palmas. There, the rivers create oases in the dry landscape, attracting many ecotourists to the region.
