 THE BRAZILIAN MINUTE:

 

April 22nd Is Brazil's 'Day of Discovery'!

Here's the story of Brazil’s ‘Discovery Day,’ and of explorer Pedro Alvares Cabral.

In March 1500, Cabral left Lisbon Portugal under the King’s charter with 13 vessels - and more than 1000 crew - on orders to sail beyond Africa’s Cape of Good Hope, towards India. But storms forced Cabral off course. Caught in the strong Atlantic currents, his expedition headed even farther west.

On April 22, 1500, after 44 days of sailing, Cabral’s fleet sighted the soon-to-be-named Mount Pascoal near the present city of Porto Seguro in Bahia. The next day they were welcomed by the Tupiniquim Indians who were waiting for them on the beach.

On Easter Sunday, April 26th. a Franciscan Father, Frei Henrique de Coimbra, celebrated the very first mass in the New World, curiously watched by 200 of the Tupi tribe.

Today Brazil’s Discovery Day is celebrated as an unofficial national observance, and interestingly, the word ‘Tupiniquim’ has come to mean ‘Brazilian’ or ‘National’ as in the phrase ‘Cantor Tupiniquim’ which means ‘Brazilian singer.’
