Meaning

Krenacore, Kreen-akore, Kreen-akrore, Kreen-akarore, Krenhakarore, or (Panará: About this soundKrenakarore  - "Giant Indians"), are variations of the Kayapó name Kran iakarare, which means "roundlike cuthead", a reference to their traditional hair style which identifies them. They are an indigenous tribe living on the borders of the states of Mato Grosso and Pará, in Brazil.

They were officially contacted in 1973, when the Cuiabá–Santarém highway was under construction and cut their traditional territory across the region of the Peixoto de Azevedo river. The violence of the contact caused the death of two thirds of their population, due to disease and massacres. On the brink of extermination, 79 individuals were transferred in 1975 by Funai to the Xingu National Park in order to avoid their disappearance.

In 1995, 50 Indians left Xingu to found a new village at the headwaters of the Iriri River, part of their original land. After a year and a half of hard work, they brought the remaining 130 individuals of the group. Nowadays, they prefer to be called by their real name Panará, which means "we people", "we human beings".

In 2000, the Regional Federal Court in Brasilia, sentenced the Union and Funai to pay an indemnity of 2 million reais for the material and moral damage caused by the contact with civilization. The decision was the first of the Brazilian judiciary to recognize the responsibility of the State regarding its policy towards the Indians. The Panará indigenous land was officially declared theirs by the Ministry of Justice in 1996, with an extension of 488,000 hectares. In 2003, the number of individuals counted 250, which grew to 374 in 2008. As of July 2014, they sum about 450.

Wikiproject

I will always consider myself a newbie in Wikipedia and always define myself as such. I am a Wikignome 'cos I enjoy editing minor things here and there whenever I can, although making things a little bit more readable captivates my passion even more everyday. I have no interest in becoming an administrator, because I am not a nannie. I am a card game researcher involved in recreating card games such as Hombre, Spoil Five and Piquet, as well as Rummy games such as Cooncan, Khanhoo and Mahjong. Unlike what some may say, playing cards are used to play games, so their rules are an integral part of their own literature and as such they must be listed.
Don't complain about the articles. Go there and fix 'em yourself.

My primary Wikiproject was to organize card games according to their roots, providing as much historical information as possible, but as there was no consensus as for how to do the job, besides a huge lack of interest from other editors, I ran outta steam. So, I skipped to history, geography, biography, classical music and interwiki translations. The important for me is the story behind the subject researched, the people and the time in which they lived. The whole thing is very simple: either you're green (inclusionist) or red (deletionist). I guess that explains it all by itself and tells me what kind of person you are. Most important, I am constantly on a "Wikibreak" which I intend to keep until I finish my work in real life. So, my activity here largely depends on my mood and free time. Live and let it live !

Papilio machaon
Papilio machaon, also known as the Old World swallowtail, is a butterfly of the family Papilionidae. It is present throughout the entire Palearctic region, ranging from western Europe and Russia to China and Japan, including the Himalayas and Taiwan, across into Alaska, Canada, and the United States, and as far south as Saudi Arabia and Oman. The adult butterfly typically has yellow wings with black vein markings, and a wingspan of 65–86 millimetres (2.6–3.4 in). The hindwing has a pair of protruding tails, similar to that of a swallow, and just below each tail is one red and six blue eyespots. In the caterpillar stage, P. machaon has a length of 45 millimetres (1.8 in) and resembles a bird dropping, giving it camouflage.Photograph: Zeynel Cebeci
