Abstract: This article describes socioculturally established interactions between inhabitants of Unini River, at Jau National Park, Central Amazon, with the local wild fauna. The diversity of these interactions and how their reproduction is influenced by associated factors of gender and generation. The methodological procedures used were participative observation and focus group workshops. In these workshops, free-listings of wild fauna related to diverse forest habitats and ecological niches were produced and the degree of similarity and dissimilarity between those lists were analyzed using the Jaccard index, illustrated in dendrograms. In general, mental associations between fauna and habitats are similar among community members. Nevertheless, effects of gender and generation are noticeable. Reproduction of such interaction permeates the issue of habitus, which structures the socialization process of cultural interaction with the local fauna.
