Images from the Brazilian Indians. Moura. Of more than four thousand representations, five hundred of which are reproduced here, concerning 220 indigenous peoples of Brazil. The images were cataloged in chronological order and numbered, and are grouped by ethnicity. For better identification, maps that indicate the location of indigenous peoples are presented, some of them illustrated with images that depict daily life, fauna and flora. Complementing the survey, the author prepared indexes for ethnicities, descriptors, topographical index, indigenous graphics, anthropomorphic ceramics, anthropomorphic masks, artists, photographers, authors and collections. As Betty Mindlin comments, it is a true course of Brazilian history, centered on the records, in images, of the life of the Indians since the arrival of the settlers in the sixteenth century. 688 p. 3 kg. Full title: "Estou Aqui. Sempre Estive. Sempre Estarei. Indígenas do Brasil. Suas Imagens (1505-1955)". First edition. 23 x 29 cm
