GALLOIS, Dominique Tilkin. Gêneses waiãpi, entre diversos e diferentes. Rev. Antropol. [online]. 2007, vol.50, n.1, pp.45-83. ISSN 0034-7701. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-77012007000100002.
Based on the revision of material registered with the Wajãpi of Amapá in different situations of interlocution, this article seeks to comprehend the construction of differences based on the native models concerning humanity. The indigenous reflections and their use of social distance markers are treated as "ethno gênesis", in the plural. In these cases, such processes are not limited to the construction of identities in the colonial encounter, but are dynamically transformed in the contexts of social networks.
Keywords : Guianas; social networks; narratives; native models.
