This thesis corresponds to an ethnography about the yuhupdeh of the lower Tiquié river, a people belonging to the Nadehup (Maku linguistic family, located in the Amazon Northwest. It is sought to retake here the theme of Maku mobility as the guiding thread of the report that develops in the four chapters of the thesis, understanding it as a characteristic of its sociability, its way of inhabiting the world in relation to its production of knowledge about the world itself. As the ethnographic experience reveals, the yuhupdeh perform a broad movement on the axis from the Serra do Bacurau region, at the headwaters of the Igarapé Ira, home of the Yuhupdeh clans, to the city of São Gabriel da Cachoeira and from there, to the Lake (Rio de Janeiro and other major cities of the country) in the written and photographic records of anthropologists and linguists. It is a pendular movement that coincides with the space-time axis upstream of the trip of the canoe snake, but also around which the cosmos and the yuhupdeh social life are organized. In general, we will try to understand the way in which the yuhupdeh relate their own history, from their appearance in mythical time to the present moment where they are increasingly frequent in the city and have their language and narratives conducted even further, to Rio de Janeiro or São Paulo. In fact, it becomes a focus of interest of the analysis to understand the way the yuhupdeh formulate the transformations in that upstream space-time axis, that is, from Milky Lake to the Serra do Bacurau and, conversely, from Serra to Lake.
