The city's population is somewhere around 13,000, but the entire region has 40,806 people, scattered over 109,185 km2, mostly indigenous peoples in surrounding tribes and villages.In 2003, Nheengatu became an official language along with Portuguese in São Gabriel da Cachoeira.It is the third largest municipality in Brazil by territorial area, and the second largest in Amazonas.
