The sociocultural formation of Boa Vista – Roraima and the Macushi and Wapishana people in the city: historical process and sense of belonging

Luciana Marinho de Melo


This article has as main theme the presence of the indigenous peoples Macushi and Wapishana at the Capital of Roraima, Brazil, and it is based on the critical reading of historiography produced from the eighteenth century about the occupation of the State. This historiographical return
aims to understand the socio-political relations, conflicts and other factors that underlie the absence of such indigenous peoples in the formation history of the city, and the construction of socio-cultural demands of Macushi and Wapishana residing in the urban area of Boa Vista.
