““Cangaço is the name given to a form of “social banditry” in the Northeast of Brazil in late 19th and early 20th centuries. In a reaction against land owners and the government, many men and women decided to become nomadic bandits, roaming the hinterlands seeking money, food and revenge
“Because of the heat and the absence of water some cangaceiros wore French perfume which they stole from rich people’s houses, and used in large quantities””
Money, food, and revenge. And awesome hats. And French perfume.
