Ãndios e Terras â CearÃ: 1850-1880




The different processes of interiorization and inter-ethnics relations constitute the distinction of an official silence trend related to the ethnic acceptance of the indians located in CearÃ, on the second half of 19th century. This thesis, named âÃndios e Terras â Cearà â 1850-1880â, analyses this âdisappearanceâ, social conditions in which it happened, and the consequences of this process as well. The period focused embraces the validation of the âLei de Terrasâ - its approval, regulation, implementation, dynamics, meanings. In order to make a deconstruction of the high society arguments about the âdisappearanceâ of the indian peoples located in Cearà from 1850 to 1880, I focus on the things that didnât get explicit by the official speeches of this period. The local Legislative actions related to the indians placed in CearÃ, the relations between the judiciary authorities and the indian society and the process of landmark are analyzed through documents from the Government and addressed to the authorities of the territory by its president. In my theory, itâs said that in Brasil, especially in CearÃ, the âdisappearanceâ of the indians is part of a social construction related, among other things, to the land issues. To support that, I seek the deconstruction of concepts elaborated through history to establish an image of exclusion to the indians, when related to the national society. The thoughts of the dominant society about the indian âdisappearanceâ are characterized as a subterfuge to the land expropriation and the use of indians wage-earner workers, serving to the big farmers. However, in the analyzed period, thereâs the fact that a great deal of indians resisted the expulsion from their lands, forcing integration in the local society
