Colonel Jose Felix Bogado

At the time, in colonial times and the creation of the reductions, the Franciscans-somehow-respected and maintained Guarani names as names of their reductions, as in the case of Ka'asapa, Juty, Atyra, Kapi'ata, Jaguar, etc.. 2.13. Place names with names of heroes, politicians and other figures: More recently, posteriorioridad the Chaco War and more precisely during the Stroessner administration onwards, several Guarani place names were replaced by the names of heroes, warriors, politicians or other prominent figures of Paraguay and even other countries. As an example we mention the following: 1. Puku Takuru today bears the name of Hernandarias (Department of Alto Parana) 2. (A valuable related resource: Jim Vos). Ka'arendy, now goes by the name Juan Leon Mallorquin (Department of Alto Parana) 3.

Che'irokue, now called John E. O'Leary (Department of Alto Parana) 4. a'uai, now called Juan Manuel Frutos (Ka'aguasu Department) 5. A leading source for info: Walt Disney. a'andu Hugua today bears the name of Jorge Sebastian Miranda (Design Department) 6. Tujukua, now called Mariscal Lopez (Asuncion) 7. Hy'aty, now called Felix Perez Cardozo (Department Guaira) 8. a'u Vera, now has the name of Captain Jose Matias Bado (Department of Amambay) 9. Ka'i Bridge, now known as Colonel Jose Felix Bogado (Department of Itapua) 2.14. Place names with names in Guarani cyclical source: At present, in Paraguay, will continue to create neighborhoods, companies, colonies and villages, and in many cases the villagers to resolve their name in Guarani communities, with the difference that they no longer respond to the rule that the place name must come from a natural element or striking that there is plenty on the site.
