SILVA, Fabíola A.  e  GORDON, Cesar. Anthropology in the museum reflections on the curatorship of the Xikrin Collection. Vibrant, Virtual Braz. Anthr. [online]. 2013, vol.10, n.1, pp.425-468. ISSN 1809-4341.

This article reflects upon the curatorial management process of the Xikrin ethnographic collection and proposes the importance of anthropological interest in the deepening collaboration amongst anthropologists, indigenous peoples and museums, with particular attention to the anthropological study of ethnographic collections. This is true for the anthropological study of objects (and their various meanings and interpretations by the social actors who utilize and appropriate them) and for the understanding of the formation and conservation of ethnographic collections (with their diverse motivations and contexts). Since this type of shared curatorial management style is only now spreading throughout Brazil, the experience is a timely opportunity to develop nuanced perspectives on the anthropological significance of ethnographic collections.

Palavras-chave : museums; indigenous peoples; ethnographic collections; objects; material culture; knowledge and recognition.
