A Aldeia de São Nicolau do Rio Pardo: histórias vividas por índios guaranis (séculos XVIII-XIX)

The Village of São Nicolau do Rio Pardo: stories lived by Guarani Indians (18th-19th centuries)

This dissertation's main objective is to understand aspects of the formation, maintenance and dissolution of the village of São Nicolau do Rio Pardo. From the mid eighteenth century until the third quarter of the nineteenth he has remained as a predominantly indigenous area. During his career on the eighteenth the stories of people who composed it are less known. Thus, attempts to reconstruct the social and power relations that were inserted into the Indians, taking into account their roles as social actors, perceiving their active participation in the historical process from which they establish contacts with other agents. The central historical sources are documents of the General Directorate of the Indians and of the village, letters, notices and correspondence from the city council of Rio Pardo, president of Province reports and reports of travelers. Moreover, the research addresses issues about aspects involving disputes between the Indians and the surrounding society for the lands of the village, their participation in provincial wars and political and church speeches produced on them. These elements can be linked with processes of identity formation of the Guarani Indians in southern Brazil.
