Analyzing three images bore in sources and documents created from the 18th to mid-19th-century--\"sertanistas\", \"paulistas\", and \"agricultores\"--, this thesis explores the transforming relations between São Paulo\'s elite, indigenous groups, and the territory, that occurred during said period. We start from the fields of cultural history and the discussions about images of the captaincy and province\'s population, both made by and desive for political, economic, and social contexts. The chosen chronological scope, of around one century, considered as a longuee dureé time-scale, was demmed necessary to enable a deeper understanding over the changes and persistences that took place at that moment. Three were the main documents with which we worked: the so-called Mapa das Cortes (1749), part of the dossier manufactured by the Portuguese Crown for negotiations with their Spanish counterpart over colonial borders; Pedro Taques de Almeida Paes Leme\'s (1714-1777) genealogical writtings, originally organized for the purposes of requiring privileges and honorary titles for the most important families of São Paulo; and the Mappa Chorographico da Provincia de São Paulo (1841), first cartographical representation of the newly-created province. Our conclusions point to the distancing of these elites from indigenous groups--which had even been part of the establishment of these families--amid the territory\'s reconfiguration, put in motion through the importing of enlighment theories and principles. The very presence of native population in the lands coveted for agriculture was turned into a social and economical issue, to be investigated and solved by intelectuals and politicians, closing in on their autonomy and successively restricting their territorial domain.
