About

GUAYAMU CULTURAL - RIO - BRAZIL

We are a production company based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, exclusively dedicated since 2020 to researching the life, work, and legacy of Colonel Percy Harrison Fawcett. In 1925, Fawcett disappeared somewhere in the Amazon rainforest while searching for a lost city he referred to as 'Z'. His team consisted solely of himself, his eldest son Jack, and his son's friend, Raleigh Rimmel.

Fawcett's reports, sent from the jungle, captivated the attention of 20 million avid readers worldwide through the North American Newspapers Alliance (NANA), which published the colonel's adventures. The disappearance of the Fawcett expedition in 1925 spurred the launch of dozens of other expeditions over the past 100 years, all promising to rescue the colonel or unravel the mystery, making it the greatest human hunt of all time, with surprising consequences.

Over the past 4 years (as of 11/23/2023), I have conducted extensive research and acquired over a hundred books related to Fawcett, as well as hundreds of articles, documents, and maps. Additionally, we have traveled by car approximately 45,000 km throughout South America, following in the footsteps of the colonel and seeking answers to the gaps in history.

Many pieces of information circulate about Fawcett, but most of them are false or incomplete. This website aims to document our research on Fawcett and other related investigations, as well as catalog all available information on this 'phenomenon.'

This is an ongoing investigation! If you have your own research related to Fawcett and would like to publish or share it, you are welcome to do so (contact us).

If you have relevant information that can effectively contribute to this investigation, please get in touch with us.

If you are a history enthusiast and a fan of real mysteries, feel free to follow our work, but we must warn you: there is a great chance that you, your perceptions, and your view of history will be changed in this process, and like me and many before me, you will never be the same!
