This dissertation presents the results of a study made on the cultural policies aimed at the promotion and protection of practices, knowledge and expressions associated with the ceramic dolls of the Karajá people, recognized as Brazilian cultural heritage in January 2012. The primary goal of this research is to understand how the cultural manifestations of indigenous peoples are being dealt with in the country's cultural policies. The specific objectives are to analyze the registration processes and the actions to safeguard the intangible cultural heritage represented by the Karajá dolls, considering the performance of the National Historical and Artistic Heritage Institute (IPHAN), of the Anthropological Museum of the Federal University of Goiás (UFG) and the indigenous communities themselves in these processes, in order to understand this experience of shared and intercultural action involving an institution that manages national policies for the protection of cultural heritage, an academic institution and indigenous communities. One of the questions is whether there is indigenous role as a protagonist in this process of patrimonialization, considering the need to ensure the Karajá people human rights to dignity, autonomy and full citizenship. In this sense, the work seeks to identify subsidies for the development of new actions to strengthen and enhance this cultural asset and its holders. With regard to the theoretical and methodological aspects, the research starts from a decolonial and intercultural conception that, at the same time that it is attentive to the narratives and the indigenous perspectives, seeks to understand the unfolding of dialogue and intercultural actions and the possibilities of construction new knowledge and new practices, through shared management. From this perspective, in addition to reading and consulting the specialized bibliography, documents produced in the processes and actions for registering and safeguarding Karajá dolls were analyzed; direct observation and ethnography of events related to these processes and actions that took place between 2018 and 2020, with notes in a field diary and photographic record, in addition to informal conversations and informal talking and remote interviews with representatives of the institutions and communities involved in the process.
