The municipality of Xavantina (4,124 inhabitants in 2013; 21,669 ha) is located 530 km west of Florianópolis. The municipality is composed of the districts of Xavantina (seat) and of the district of Linha das Palmeiras.

Xavantina was established in the 1920s by the Broetto, Balbinot, Criveletto, Zanandréa and Lecardelli families, short after the inauguration of the railway connecting São Paulo to Rio Grande do Sul.
The district of Xavantina was established, within the municipality of Seara, by Municipal Law No. 29 promulgated on 23 August 1956, to be created a municipality by State Law No. 945 promulgated on 13 December 1963, which was inaugurated on 2 February 1964.

The town was named either for the Xavantes natives of for one of the earlier settlers who came from Nova Xavantina (Mato Grosso); named Possan, he was the first owner of a car in the town.
