Abstract in Portuguese
Esta tese consiste na etnografia de um povo Tupi-Guarani da Amazônia Oriental, os Awá-Guajá, localizados no estado do Maranhão. Os Awá-Guajá são um povo fundamentalmente caçador, e a tese se debruça sobre as relações que estabelecem entre as atividades de caça e outros processos de vida, como o parentesco, através da idéia de rikô; e a cosmologia, através da idéia de karawara. Basicamente são examinadas: (1) as formas pelas quais os Awá se relacionam com seu território, e as concepções cosmográficas; (2) as formas de produção da pessoa humana; (3) a conjugalidade e a construção do parentesco; (4) a caça, como uma atividade central à vida; (5) e, finalmente, a relação dos humanos com um grupo de entidades não-humanas denominadas karawara.

Abstract in English
This thesis is an ethnographic account of the Awa-Guajá people, a Tupi-Guarani speaking group that lives in eastern Amazonia, in the state of Maranhão, Brazil. The work examines: (1) the ways they conceive of territory, and their cosmographic perceptions; (2) human personhood and ways of being; (3) conjugality and kinship processes; (4) hunting as a central activity to life; and (5) finally, the relationship between humans and the karawara (non-human entities), which is also central to life and Awá-Guajá's world. The thesis focuses on the relationships established by these people, the activities of hunting, and other life processes, such as kinship, through the idea of 'riko'; and cosmology, through the idea of karawara.
