Indaiatuba - The name is a conjunction of two terms of the Tupi-Guarani language "Indaiá", a type of palm tree, and "tuba", which equates to big quantity. So "Indaiatuba" means many "Indaiás." In 1830, Indaiatuba became Freguesia da Vila de Itu, and in 1859 the village was raised. It received many immigrants from Europe in the late nineteenth century and, in the twentieth century, from Japan. They have been mainly in agriculture, but also to trade, and manufacturing workshops.
