Bibliography of the indigenous Problems and Policy of the Brazilian Amazon Region. 1957-1972
This publication is a bibliography of the Brazilian Amazon region covering the period from 1957-1972. The publication refers to the entire Brazilian Amazon region, however most of the publications mentioned deal with its southeastern part, the Northern Mato Grosso, Goiás and Southern Pará. This is due to the fact that at the time of writing the indigenous policy and its consequences was concentrated on that more accessible and therefore more affected and afflicted area of the interior of Brazil. The bibliography begins with Darcy Ribeiro’s “Culturas e línguas Indígenas do Brasil”. Published at a time of radical change in Brasilian indigenous policy, when its official body came under military direction, this fundamental essay was the first serious analysis of the indigenous problem in Brazil. A few years later, in 1962, it was again the same ethnologist who wrote “A Política Indigenista Brasileira”, which was the only detailed study of Brazilian indigenous policy that existed at the time of the publications release.
