Urutau: um mestre na tribo

Representative of the ethnicity Guajajara left hollow in Maranhão to study


One of the leading voices of the indigenous  group which occupied the former Museu do Índio, Urutau, ethnic Guajajara, left  his tribe in Maranhão to come study in Rio in the 90. Today, with almost 20 years in the city, is a researcher at the  National Museum of the UFRJ PROVIDES, which is completing a master’s degree in  Linguistics. His project is to try the PhD  later this year.

My function is to keep alive the indigenous  culture. That is why I am fighting against the  output of the village maracana. Indian heritage,  not sells. The memory of my ancestors is there–said the indigenous, of 52 years, father of four children.
