Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.
Do not translate text that appears unreliable or low-quality. If possible, verify the text with references provided in the foreign-language article.
The municipality's first inhabitant was Lino Figueira, established in the region c. 1900. A great part of its subsequent population were Italian immigrants from Antônio Prado, Veranópolis, Bento Gonçalves, Caxias do Sul and Garibaldi, who started colonising during the early 20th century. Before its establishment as a municipality, the land belonged to Taquari and later Encantado.
