The kind people

The Second National Indigenous Census, conducted in 2002, recording approximately 87,099 people, or 1.7% of the country's population, as being indigenous; however, as many as 95% of the Paraguay population is mestizo, that of partial Indian descent. Since the late 20th century, the indigenous population is growing faster than the rest of the population.
