For carijós Indians, the island was called Meiembipe, translated from the Tupi as mountain along the channel, ie, the view that the Indians had to watch it from the mainland. Have a vision that Indians had the island to the mainland and termed Acutia or narrow channel of water between the mainland and the island was known as Jureremirim, which translated into Portuguese means "small mouth water ".


We mention that the Indians had no written records exist and that their customs and culture were performed over the years by the conquerors, now prays Portuguese Spanish.
