Resumen

BEZERRA, Marcia. SIGNIFYING HERITAGE IN AMAZON: A PUBLIC ARCHAEOLOGY PROJECT AT VILA DE JOANES, MARAJÓ ISLAND, BRAZIL. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2012, vol.44, n.3, pp.533-542. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562012000300015.

The paper summarizes the initial results of a public archaeology project undertaken at Vila de Joanes, a fishing village in the Amazon, on Marajó Island, where I conducted research with a site that was a religious mission from the XVII century. By reflecting about the local communities’ ideas about the site I explore the underlying logic of collecting artifacts -a local practice- and the subsequent organization of "small collections," arguing that collecting in this context should not be considered "destruction" but rather as a particular form of heritage appropriation. By exercising such reflections the study aims to better understand the relationship between small scale communities and archaeological patrimony in the Amazon as well as to aid in the development of distinct public policies which are appropriate for local preservation.

Palabras clave : Public archaeology; patrimony; collections; Marajó Island; Amazon.
