The colony was first founded by 350 Germans, 14 Belgians, 5 French persons and 4 Swiss persons. Colonel José Maria Pereira de Campos created and organized the colony of Ijuí and brought Europeans to the area. The Italians arrived in the 1880s, as the century passed, with the establishment of the colony of Jaguari, the localities of Sanga da Areia and Ernesto Alves. In 1834, Arsene Isabelle, a French diplomat, in ways between the area, refers to a locality of Boqueirão de Santiago, its existence of three to four ranches.
