2018-02-07T02:46:15Z (GMT) by Devair Antonio Fiorotti

abstract Taren, eren and panton are terms from the Macuxi language that mean, respectively, enchanted word, song and narrative. Macuxi are Carib indians who designate themselves as Pemon (people). They live in the Circum-Roraima region, on the triple border among Brazil-Venezuela-Cooperative Republic of Guyana. This work proposes these three Macuxi terms as an expression of an oral poetics of this indigenous people, who are troubled by the disregard towards Brazilian oral poetics.
