Title: Chronicles Of Death Revived In The Struggle: An Ethnography Of The Martyrs Of The Walk Pilgrimage In Ribeirão Cascalheira (mato Grosso, Brazil) [crônicas Da Morte Revivida Na Luta: Uma Etnografia Da Romaria Dos Mártires Da Caminhada Em Ribeirão Cascalheira (mt), Brasil]
Abstract: The purpose of this article is to discuss some aspects that compose a ritual sacralization of popular leaders, killed in areas of intense land conflicts in Brazil, and their transformation into martyrs of the land. The Martyrs of the Walk Pilgrimage which provides the basis for this analytical incursion took place between 16 and 17 July 2011, in Ribeirão Cascalheira (Mato Grosso). The agency of these martyrs seems to be based on individual skills, recognized and legitimized within the group itself, both because of their trajectories of struggle and resistance and their training by religious and Catholic missionaries linked to the Liberation Theology. In this direction, if while living their work with peasants and indigenous groups was intense, when they are dead their presence is often triggered and ritualized. This enterprise suggests that the dead man’s active memory, linked to the active memory of the struggle, enables the active presence of the dead in the struggle. © CRIA.
