Abstract

This research project aims to explore the possibilities of dialogue between semiotic studies, focused mainly on aspects of culture, and gender studies, a relatively new field in the human sciences, in order to elucidate the situation of Brazilian native women. For this, it places the context of the urgency of an analysis approach that privileges intersectional politics, based on the triad race, class and gender, as the demand for a decolonial perspective, in which the apparatus to be handled escapes from universalizing categories.It takes as its corpus the way of life of Brazilian native women, specifically the work of the activist Eliane Potiguara, as a subject in a precarious condition in the face of normative discourses, and the narratives outlined in the collection Ser mulher indígena é..., whose ancestral memory and being indigenous itself is used as a political tool. The justifications that sustain the project are presented, as well as the proposed objectives that guide the research. The intention is to present a critique of the current situation of Brazilian indigenous women, from a mapping of how the constant violations of these bodies are occurring, as well as the justifications that have been presented to support the precarious condition of indigenous women. The intention is to present a critique of the current situation of Brazilian indigenous women, from a mapping of how the constant violations of these bodies are occurring, as well as the justifications that have been presented to support the precarious condition of indigenous women. In addition, the identification of the precariousness of these peoples serves as a tool to think of ways to react for their preservation and social activities that allow them to respect their own being in the world.
