BARROS, Mariana Leal de. Narration of afro-brazilian myths in child education: activity possibilities for democratic learning. Rev. SPAGESP [online]. 2012, vol.13, n.1, pp. 62-78. ISSN 1677-2970.

Concerns on elaborating affirmative actions aiming to insert black in society are not recent. However, black children at school are risen lacking cultural identity and are marked by repression, by lost of their own values, and by a sense of inferiority. As an opposition, this paper presents the experience of narrating Orixá’s mythology at a pre-primary school. The joy of the boy who discovered the powers of King Xangô, the shining look of the girl who admired the Queen of the Sea’s curly hair and discussions on what it means to “be black” were part of the experience with the up-to-six-year-old groups. It reflects how, with the use of playful elements, we can address necessary contents for a policy of inclusion since early childhood.

Keywords : Mythology; Inclusive education; Ethnopsychoanalysis; Afro-brazilian.
