The remaining Kapinawá, a community comprising approximately 800 people, live in a reservation and village system occupying an area of 12,260 hectares, at Mina Grande, Municipality of Buíque, Pernambuco.
Agriculture and straw handicraft are their basic means of subsistence.
As a tradition, they dance the toré, that is presented utilizing African music and coco, and performed at a place called Furna, where human remains have been found. There is information that many Indians were burned at that location.
The Kapinawá do not have their own language.
