FERREIRA, Mayara dos Santos  y  CALEGARE, Marcelo Gustavo Aguilar. Psychopolitical debates on indigenous in the city context. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2019, vol.9, n.1, pp. 72-90. ISSN 2238-152X.

The migration of indigenous people to the cities has been considered a significant phenomenon in recent years in North region and has directed reconfigurations in indigenous ways of life. Said that, in this critical essay we aim to make psychopolitical readings of the indigenous in a city context through the category of collective identity, to think its usefulness related to this indigenous question and to point out possible conceptual limitations when applied to this reality. This category allowed us to reflect on aspects such as the construction of the adhesion to the group in multiethnic communities / associations and the sense of belonging, which corroborates with the political participation and the reaffirmation of ethnic and identity ties. The discussion allowed us to make pertinent notes to the use of this category to reflect on the indigenous city reality, but we considered the need to rethink it, considering the particularities arising from the ethnic and organizational specificities of indigenous peoples.
