Caring and Love.1

My research interest is based on Dr. William Crocker’ s archive of photos and film about the Canela (Central Brazilian Indians). Crocker began field research with the Canela (Gê-speaking Indians who live in Maranhão state, Brazil), in 1957 and continued to do so intermittently until 2011 - a total of more than 50 years. Importantly, he extensively prepared and used documentation, such as taking notes, tape recording, photographing and filming the Canela way of life. Today these data are housed at the Smithsonian Institution and form one of the biggest collections of South-American native people at the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution (Washington D.C.).
