Fordland is the name given to an area of 14 568 km² that is found in the municipality of Aveiro, in the state of Pará, on the banks of the Tapajós River, northern Brazil. It received this name because in the past it was a company town acquired by the American businessman Henry Ford, in September 1927, thanks to an agreement with the Brazilian federal government. The project was officially closed in 1945.
