Les indigènes d'Amazonie d'après les récits des Jésuites des 17e et 18e siècles : Bettendorff et João Daniel

Abstract : Grão-Para and Maranhão, ancient captaincies of Amazon, were colonized at the beginning of the 17th century by Jesuits who contributed to the development of that area. As they were close to the indigenous populations that they were mandated to evangelize, Jesuits wrote accounts, full of information about Indians. These writings are nowadays considered historical sources for the study of indigenous tribes who didn't have writing. Using two jesuits' accounts written by Bettendorff, author of Crónica da Missão dos Padres da Companhia de Jesus no Estado do Maranhão, and João Daniel, who wrote Tesouro descoberto no Máximo Rio Amazonas, both jesuits serving the Portuguese crown, we will study the way indigenous of Amazonia were pictured by these authors.
