The context of the indigenous movement in Brazil, observe the proeminence of indigenous leaders who come to narrate the memories told in the first-person singular, in an attempt to speak on behalf of their groups. These speeches become important to understand, beyond the indigenous movement, the subjectivity Amerindians schemes, the emergence of autobiographical subject within the ethnology and its implications in writing the ethnographic text. Once, as from his speeches, that policy and poetic notions they emerge for the anthropologist as part of an ethnographic text. From this discussion, this research performs an approach of memories and narratives of a tupi guarani leadership that lives in the village Ywytu Guaçu (Renascer) in the city of Ubatuba / SP, the leader Antonio da Silva Awa. It is an ethnography that focuses on the effects of the meeting such leadership, these effects expressed through statements, speeches and quotidian advice. These speeches open up possibilities for other reflections such as the use of a specific self-designation that make use of category mixture as singularity attribute of a people, the relationships with several other "types of people," the commitment to actions and negotiations seeking to reconcile interests between distinct worlds, amerindians ways politics gets done and the highlight of indigenous representatives as prestigious leadership and recognition in their groups. That everything associated with the idea of production and formation of subjects tupi guarani and the learning from ancients.
