Araucária is a municipality in the Brazilian state of Paraná. The population in 2010 was 119,207 inhabitants.EtymologyOf geographical origin, is in reference to the huge reserve of native forest existing at the time of settlement of the county. This forest, composed of specimens of the species Araucaria angustifolia'''', or pine do Paraná, is common in colder areas.HistoryThe first movement of the white man in today Araucaria, dating back to the year 1668,period in which Domingos Rodrigues da Cunha received a land grant, donated by Captain Settler, Gabriel Lara, the strong man of Paraná that period. Other land grants were given to their children Luiz Rodrigues Garcia and Elder, and were in Pass Apiaúna, making currency with the Iguazu River, which then received the name of Rio Grande de Curitiba. These families started mowing, laid the first seeds and the place became a point of reference. Some years after developed a town that was named Tindiqüera. The occupation was relatively quick and settled there the surgeon Pascoal Fernandes Leite, Captain Manoel de Carvalho Biting and many others. The historical origin of Tindiqüera, whence the Araucaria, deserves a separate chapter in the historiography of Paraná, for its wealth. Reportedly lived in the small village of Nossa Senhora da Luz dos Pinhais later Curitiba, a large family of Maia, and the brave men who kept rushing and troubled relations with the authorities and other settlers of the place. The incidents have followed them the condition of personas non incipient grateful in Curitiba, even to the point of being forced to move away from the village and take refuge in a distant place, to prevent the course of justice, the persecuted, and the vengeance of the people. The venue for large family Maia was exactly Tindiqüera of town, situated on the banks of the Iguazú and right on top of an ancient Indian village. In 1876 the region received strong immigration flow of Russians, Poles and Germans, who gave a joint action to place progress through Cologne Thomaz Coelho. The advent of the Republic encouraged the community to draw up a petition, which was duly forwarded to the state government, through Mr Victor Ferreira do Amaral. On February 11, 1890, by State Decree No. 40, signed into law by Governor José Marques Guimaraes, was created the city, with territory taken from the cities of Curitiba and Pinhais, and renamed Araucária The official installation took place on 1 March 1890.
