ROCHA, Rafael Ale. Settlers, Indians and Blacks in the Border of the Cabo Norte (1700-1750). Rev. Bras. Hist. [online]. 2019, vol.39, n.82, pp.131-152.  Epub Dec 09, 2019. ISSN 0102-0188.

This article analyzes the territory called Cabo Norte (Amapá) during the first decades of the 18th century, as a space that included diverse individuals and social groups (Indians, blacks, mestizos, French and Portuguese settlers, authorities, and missionaries) and imperial interests - especially those of the crowns of Portugal and France. Based on diverse correspondences, we will observe that the mentioned groups conditioned the frontier situation and were conditioned by it, to satisfy their respective interests and elaborate their policies of action. In the same way, a special object of our attention are the various indigenous groups that inhabited it, principally, the aruãs.

Keywords : colonial Amazon; colonial frontiers; Cabo Norte; indigenous policies.
