CAVALCANTE, Thiago Leandro Vieira. Ethnohistory and indigenous history: questions about concepts, methods and relevance of research. História [online]. 2011, vol.30, n.1, pp.349-371. ISSN 1980-4369.

Since the 1990s, research into indigenous history has grown both quantitatively and qualitatively in Brazilian academia. Nevertheless the concepts of ethnohistory and indigenous history have been frequently used imprecisely. This article discusses the concept of ethnohistory and its development. Also, it discusses the interdisciplinary character of research into indigenous history and its social relevance. Questions are also raised about the training of human resources for teaching, the research into indigenous history, the teaching of it in the context of basic education and the professional ethics of the researcher.

Keywords : Ethnohistory; Indigenous History; Interdisciplinary.
