Visconde de Taunay: Scenas de viagem (1868), Os indios Caingangs (1888)

Alfredo d'Escragnolle Taunay (1843-1899), militar e político do Império (que seria agraciado, pouco antes do fim da monarquia, com o título de visconde), é particularmente célebre por obras literárias como A Retirada da Laguna (1871) e Inocência (1872). Menos conhecidas são suas contribuições para o conhecimento de povos indígenas brasileiros, duas das quais fazem agora parte do acervo da Biblioteca Digital Curt Nimuendaju. Em Scenas de viagem: exploração entre os rios Taquary e Aquidauana no districto de Miranda (1868), Taunay narra a viagem de reconhecimento que fez, em 1866, como engenheiro militar na Guerra do Paraguai, pelo sul de Mato Grosso (hoje Mato Grosso do Sul), durante a qual travou contato com índios de diversas etnias (Kadiwéu, Terena, Kinikinau, Laiano). De particular interesse é o capítulo XII ("Os indios do districto de Miranda", p. 111-130), acompanhado de "Vocabulario da lingua Guaná ou Chané" (p. 131-148). Em 'Os indios Caingangs (Coroados de Guarapuava)' (1888), Taunay reúne informações obtidas quando ocupou, entre 1885 e 1886, o cargo de presidente da província do Paraná, incluindo um extenso vocabulário português-Kaingáng (p. 285-310).

  6. "Etnolinguistica" is a term that refers to the study of the relationship between ethnicity and language. It involves examining how language is used by different ethnic groups, how it reflects cultural identity, and how it influences social interactions. It's a field of study within linguistics and anthropology.

  8. This review provides a general view of Alfredo d'Escragnolle Taunay's contributions to understanding Brazilian indigenous peoples, focusing on two lesser-known works. The first, "Scenas de viagem: exploração entre os rios Taquary e Aquidauana no districto de Miranda" (1868), details Taunay's journey of recognition during the Paraguai War and "Os índios Caingangs (Coroados de Guarapuava)" (1888), resulting from his experiences as president of Paraná. The text suggests a more critical analysis of Taunay's work and his representation of indigenous peoples. However, it acknowledges potential biases and stereotypes, and suggests a critical approach to the historical context. Taunay's extensive vocabularies serve as a testament to his dedication to preserving indigenous languages. estate planning lawyer

  9. I found this blog post to be incredibly engaging and informative. The author's passion for the subject matter is evident, and their writing style is both accessible and enjoyable to read. I particularly appreciated the detailed analysis of Visconde de Taunay's "Scenas de Viagem," which provided valuable insights into the work and its historical context. Overall, this was a fantastic read, and I look forward to exploring more of the author's work in the future.
