Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This article is basically a study of the history of the Tapirapé during the twentieth century, particularly since they began to have sustained contact with outsiders in the 1930s. Shapiro describes early contacts of the Tapirapé with their more aggressive neighbors the Kayapó and Karajá, and how social changes were introduced to the society through contacts with the Brazilian government (e. g., the Indian Protection Service), anthropologists, and missionaries, such as Father François Jentel, and the nuns of the order of the Litle Sisters of Jesus. The author also discusses in detail the role of the Little Sisters of Jesus, in bringing about some degree of Tapirapé cultural revitalization.
