This research project aims to do an ethnography of the forms of sociality of Kalapalo children, focusing their transits between the village and cities around the Xingu Indigenous Park. The research aims to continue an earlier research in which it was systematized the Kalapalo's own people formation processes and to understand how children constantly perceive, appropriate and reformulate the "traditional" knowledge. From that point on, we intend to contribute to the studies of anthropology and children hood and, more specifically, about the recent transformations between indigenous populations of the Upper Xingu in contact with the urban world. For this, it will be necessary to continue looking at the production and formation of the Person in the Upper Xingu, but now with a focus on the transit relationship of children with city spaces.
