Accepted Paper:

The massacre of manatees in the Amazonian sources of the rubber period  
Márcio Meira (Museu Paraense Emílio Goeldi)

Paper short abstract:

The rubber cycle is well known in historiography for the violence against indigenous and poor settlers who migrated to the Amazon in the late 19th century. In this presentation I address the lesser-known manatee massacre, documented in the work of filmmaker Silvino Santos in the early 20th century.

Paper long abstract:

In this presentation I analyze the manatee massacre in the early 20th century, which took place in the Amazon in the context of the rubber economy crisis. My analysis will be based on the testimonies recorded in the work of filmmaker Silvino Santos: "No País das Amazonas".
