This research project aims to study aspects of religiousness two african-Brazilian cities of Mato Grosso do Sul - Corumbá and Campo Grande. Using the methodology of oral history, from the research of Professor José Carlos Sebe Bom Meihy, we intend to understand how it articulates a network of knowledge and practices that enable the construction of the subject to participate as a citizen of these spaces. The expansion of the look of the relationship of these practices must corroborate the fact that there is a discourse that is largely in tune with the division of the State of Mato Grosso in 1977 and therefore the continuation of a discourse that seeks to build an identity.
