In 1997 the first 16 families left the missionary station of Campo Loro and moved to a forest site secured for them by the government (see lot 384 on the map of the land claim). They founded the village of Arocojnadí and resumed their traditional life, hunting, collecting and seasonal gardening. Their declared aim is to protect their forest. To make some money, they sell honey and handicrafts, some men occasionally find work on neighbouring farms as day labourers.

In the ensuing years, the village was provided with wells and a water pond (tajamar), a schoolhouse and a dispensary room.

In 2004 some further 20 families moved to the forest. They founded the village of Chaidí on a piece of land financed by the Swiss Foundation for Indigenous Communities in Paraguay. This group was joined by 17 Totobiegosode individuals, who had been living in isolation, until the lack of water and bulldozers forced them to seek help. This settlement is also being supported in matters of education, water supply, and health care by GAT.
