The work presented takes as object of analysis many subjects: the indigenous people that from 17th June 1903 on have decided to live among the priests and have been recorded in the ethnological compendiums and books as the Bororo, the Salesian missionaries who have dealt with those Indians. All these objects are active subjects playing that part in the making of new symbolic universes by sharing the same living conditions. But they are equally, subjects and objects, in relation to each other, of the mutual observation. The proposal is a historical ethnography to understand the specificity of teaching practices developed in that context. (AU)
