The municipality of Cacequi (12,705 inhabitants in 2018; 23,732 ha) is located 400 km north-west of Porto Alegre. The municipality is composed of the districts of Cacequi (seat), Umbu and Saicã.

Cacequi means in Tupi-Guarani "Cacique Water" or "Cacique River". The area was fiercely disputed between Spain and Portugal until definitive incorporation to Portugal in 1801.
Originally part of the municipality of Rio Pardo established on 27 April 1809, Cacequi was subsequently elevated to a district of São Gabriel. The municipality of Cacequi was established by State Decree-Law No. 715 promulgated on 28 December 1944, separating from São Gabriel and General Vargas, and inaugurated on 1 January 1945.
