Abstract

This work is based on the ethnography of an encounter between chil-dren in a school in Rio de Janeiro and two former residents of Aldeia Maracanã. One of the key points of this school’s pedagogical proposal is the “valorisation of the Brazilian culture”, taking into consideration its diverse manifestations and especially invoking elements of indigenous cultures. As part of this project, one of the school’s initiative was to invite two defenders of the indigenous cause to “present their people and their culture” to the children from the second grade of elementary school. This article aims to explore the approximations, distances and questionings provoked in this contact – in which, as in verandah anthropology, the indigenous peoples come to the whites to explain their culture.
