The colonized native groups of the Kariri and the Shoko of North-eastern Brazil interpret their natural habitat like a history book, and have developed a symbolic language of the forest. They are seeking to maintain and recover their cultural traditions as a strategy for cultural and economic survival. This study examines a number of levels: indigenous knowledge and healing systems and how these have incorporated elements from other cultures, the practical uses of local medicinal plants, and the relationship between the environment and the belief system, and how this strengthens ethnic identity and supports economic and political strategies for survival. It also explores contrasts between the two groups and their interrelationship. The study should be of interest to students of ethnicity, folklore, ethnobotany and epistemology.
