Abstract

BORGES, PAULO HUMBERTO PORTO. Dreams and names: guarani children. Cad. CEDES [online]. 2002, vol.22, n.56, pp. 53-62. ISSN 0101-3262.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-32622002000100004.

This paper aims at discussing how Guarani indian groups have their children internalize the reko porã ("good way of acting") and construct their concept of childhood and work, in order to form what they call the guarani ete, i.e., the true guarani.

Keywords : Children; Native Americans; Culture; Work; Guarani; Religion.
