The dissertation compares ethnographies that analyse the theme of marriages between indians and whites in south american lowlands, also turning itself to other works that debate kinship and relations with nonindigenous in the region. The compared analysis of the material demonstrates that the ethnological interpretation of these marriages take into account two inverse movements: becoming white and domestication of whites, to which are frequently added the movements becoming indian and domestication of indians. These four movements are debated in the light of current contributions of contemporaneous americanist ethnology. (AU)
