The intention of this project is to analyze the conceptions of the Consolata missionaries and anthropologists about the Yanomami, expressed in his writings. As these agents encoders "other," try to observe in their texts the processes of development of codes of mediation, attending to the meanings assigned to it. For this you must also pay attention to the motivations, interests and social positions of these agents, which lead to these encodings in their texts. (AU)
