The estimate of the Brazilian Cayua population as of 1943 was between 2,000 and 4,000 individuals.

 CRL Newsletter Vol. 3, No. 6 July 1989
An account of Guarani possessor ascension which is not semantically based will have no way of predicting the different behaviors of the two classes of inalien- able nouns, which are shown here to pattern differently with respect to possessor ascension.
In Guarani, we have no overt indication that the rela- tion between the two nominals is a possessive one.
It seems, then, that the possessive interpretation of juxtaposed nomi- nals in Guarani is achieved by means of the RP model plus a minimal overt clue in the construction: juxtapo- sition of the two nominals, where the reference point precedes the target (PSR-PSM).

 Canadian Journal of History: Guarani Under Spanish Rule in the Rio de la Plata, The
The Guarani Under Spanish Rule is an ambitious, detailed, and thoroughlyresearched revisionist historical study of the Jesuit missions established among the Guarani Indians of the River Plate region of South America from the sixteenth to the early nineteenth century.
The means by which the Guarani registered their dissatisfaction and /or protest over change detrimental to their interests (relocation as a result of the 1750 Treaty of Madrid, for example) ranged from written letters and petitions to violent resistance if necessary.
Yet, as the author also authoritatively demonstrates, the Guarani also retained important elements of their culture (such as language), while also adapting to change, ultimately carving out a new existence for themselves as a matter of cultural survival.
