RUSSI, Adriana  e  ABREU, Regina. “Collaborative museology”: different processes in relationships among anthropologists, ethnographic collections, and indigenous peoples. Horiz. antropol. [online]. 2019, vol.25, n.53, pp.17-46.  Epub 25-Abr-2019. ISSN 0104-7183.

Anthropological museums play a relevant role in the preservation of material heritage. Anthropologists, among others, contribute to the collection, documentation, research and curation of exhibitions on different peoples and cultures. In the last decades, the expression “collaborative museology” has been coined to express an action of inclusion and dialogue with remnants of peoples whose objects have been musealized. By reconfiguring practices in museums, such actions particularly impacted relations between anthropologists and indigenous peoples. These dialogic experiences, in national and international contexts, involve anthropologists, museum professionals, indigenous peoples, museums and collections. They are different processes that point to a collaborative and symmetrical exercise between those who study and represent the different cultures and those who experience them daily. Analyzing the literature on the subject, this article talks with field experiences, bringing data about “collaborative museology” at the Museum of Archeology and Ethnology of UFSC, in Florianópolis, and the Emílio Goeldi Museum in Belém.
