Before the Paraguayan War, the city was a deserted region in the interior of Paraguay inhabited by tribes of Indians, such as Nhandevas and Caiuás, descendants of the Guarani people. The region was also a place where truckers stopped to rest while crossing from Brazil to Paraguay. In 1777 a military expedition arrived in the region, aiming to explore the region. In 1862 the military group led by the Lieutenant Antonio João Ribeiro and made base near the Dourados river (in what is now the municipality of Antônio João) and there founded the Military Colony of Dourados. In 1864, the time of the Triple Alliance War, the Military Colony of Dourados was destroyed by the Paraguayans, where he died Lieutenant Antonio João Ribeiro.
