The indigenous arts in Brazil have always been an object of interest since the colonial period when the objects produced by the indians, and in some cases the indians themselves, were taken to the Cabinets of Curiosities in Europe, seen as exotic. In visual arts, indigenous culture was represented at first with surprise and value judgments, then with the scientific purpose that directed the missions coming to Brazil to catalog those who were believed to be doomed to extinction. And then we saw, from the nineteenth century, the indigenous exalted by the Indianism and later the inspiration on their art to contemporary and modernist aesthetics. All this search to understand the indigenous culture and art from an "outside" point of view, contributes to the efforts at reconciliation between western and indigenous cultures, but do not bring the need to understand the relations of indigenous art in its context. With cultural Anthropology who settled in Brazil in the twentieth century and the field work proposed by the Indian Ethnology, an area that would also give their first steps in this century, we passed to the "inside look" of indigenous culture, thanks to the knowledge the indigenous people offered to the anthropologists who set out to hear them. This research provides examples of these various moments of the relationship between indigenous and western cultures, showing an organization of bibliographic data that can guide a more fair perspective on the indigenous arts.
