The research seeks to map native perceptions about continuity relations between indigenous teachers and indigenous leaders. It is hoped to draw up analyzes on how such relations are understood. The intention is to recover ethnographic records of other monographs, aiming to constitute an approximation to the temporal advance of these perceptions. The study proposes to revisit the literature on the Lakhanno-Xokleng to achieve the objectives. In order to understand the juridical birth of categories such as indigenous teacher, teacher, education and education, it is carried out in consultation with the Brazilian legislations that allow the implementation of schools in traditional spaces and of the state and federal laws that create and maintain denominations like "teacher and school ". A complementary objective is the attempt to identify and understand the participation and influence produced by anthropologists and anthropologists in these processes.
