Abstract: A total of 248 individuals belonging to four populations of Cain gang Indians from southern Brazil were studied in relation to 23 genetic systems that are expressed in blood and one manifested on saliva. These results were compared with those obtained in 400 members of these same communities that were subjected to 11 body measurements. Nine polymorphic loci (MNSs, P, Rh, Dully, Diego,Hp, PGM,, ESD, and Gc) were chosenfor the calculation of the genetic distances between the four populations, which were compared with Mahalanobis's D2 differences. The two sets of values proved to be intercorrelated but neither showed a relationship with the geographicdistances separatingthe four communi ties. The Caingang were previously classified linguistically as Ge, and they show several affinities with the Ge tribes, both when hematological, and morphological, characteristicsareconsidered. A variantPGDphenotype is alsodescribed, showing a curious storage effect
