This thesis is an exercice of reflection on the relationship between politics and aesthetics among the Kaingang. It covers categories such as feast, ritual, movement, retomada [reclaim] and luta [struggle] based on the etnography os political actions and expressive forms engendered by the Nẽn Ga collective, whose members reside in the Apucaraninha Indigenous Land, located in the northwest of the state of Paraná. After presenting a panoramic approach on verbal and musical forms among kaingang collectives from different regions, the descriptions focus on feasts and political mobilization events in which this collective participates. These are events of different scopes: feasts and events in the local village, regional meetings held in other Kaingang Indigenous Lands and annual meetings of national scope - here treated as indigenous uprisings. The paths taken by the Nẽn Ga collective in this etnography, therefore, involve the reclaim of the feast and the reclaim of the war: movements for which the replication and repetition of their t&#7929nh [sing-dance-ritual-movement] are essential.
