Candido Rondon was borned in Mimoso in 1865, and was the creator of Brazil's Indian Protection Service (now FUNAI). He is a national hero in Brazil. Shortly before his death in 1958, Candido Rondon was awarded with the military rank of Marshall (Marechal) - making him Brazil's highest - ever ranking officer. The famous motto he created for the Sertanistas was "Die if necessary, but never kill"
General Candido Mariano de Silva Rondon was the originator of the Indian Protection Service institution. General Rondon was a colorful personality, a blend of soldier and apostle and he was nominated the
Nobel Peace Prize several quarters including the ‘Explorers Club'.
The necessity of the Brazilian Government to erect telegram lines in Mato grosso state and to extend it Cuiaba to Araquaia on the borders of Goias state, forced Rondon to carry out this work to maintain and extend the telegraphic communications.
Between 1890 and 1930, Rondon managed to complete the erection of 4.000 miles of telegram wires in the remotest wilds of Brazil while at the same time he carried out important geographical and geological surveys in the course of which he discovered and mapped no fewer than fifteen large rivers. He was also involved with anthropological and mineralogical studies for the National Museum in Rio de Janeiro.
Rondon joined the famous expedition of Theodore Roosevelt to Rio da Duvida (River of Doubt) as an experienced guide in 1914.
Rondon came into contact with many Indian tribes during his long expeditions, and was deeply shocked by the inhuman treatment to which they were subjected by white men. The Indians found Rondon a great friend and protector. In spite of the fact that he was a soldier, Rondon served peace and fought fearlessly for the Indian's right to humane treatment, to live a life of his own according to his beliefs and ancient inherited customs.
A certain Roosevelt time said: "America can present to the world two great accomplishments, to the north the Channel of Panama and to the south the geographic conquests of Candido Rondon."
