PORRO, Antonio. The unpublished 1719 Report of Jacinto de Carvalho on Amazonian ethnography. Bol. Mus. Para. Emílio Goeldi. Ciênc. hum. [online]. 2012, vol.7, n.3, pp.761-774. ISSN 1981-8122.

After working for thirteen years at the Amazonian Jesuitic missions, the Portuguese Jacinto de Carvalho (1677-1744) sent to the Superior of his order a report on the country and on some of its native tribes' customs. This report, the main ethnographic source of early 18th Century Amazonia, is known only through a coeval Italian translation still unpublished. In this paper, the parts on ethnographic matters have been commented and translated to Portuguese.

Keywords : Jesuits; Amazon; Ethnography; 18th Century.
