When analyzing the specificities of the religious festivities present in the southeast of Tocantins, I chose the cult of Madonna of Rosary and the Divine Holy Spirit present in the Sucupira Party, with occurrence in the countryside of Dianapolis city, located at Tocantins state - a city originated with the mounting of the jesuit missions. The studies about these festivities have gained wide space in historiography due to their attention in the analysis of many aspects of the festive community. Therefore, the research highlights the process of formation and constitution of Sucupira's Party as an expression of a collective memory and the representation of the religiosity of its participants, individuals and groups involved. The respective festivity inserts in historiography for explaining the social relations established between the inhabitants of the southeast Tocantins, and also allowing the registry of regional knowledge and practices, becoming an element of collaboration with the writing of the local history when it highlights the procedures of the Individuals participating in this festivity. The festivity was approached from historical sources related to it and with the contribution of testimonials obtained as a way of appreciation of the party planners and individuals involved in the research. The manifestations occured at Sucupira clarify a broad amount of rituals and symbologies related to the colonial past and the african and lusitan heritages, reinforcing the social and hierarchical systems that intertwine with elements inserted at modernity's context, also in line with traditional elements, such as 'the masters lifting', Divine Emperor / Empress coronation, and Kings and Queens of Rosary. This way, through documentary research in parochial registries, documents present in Goiânia's archives, based on theoretical assumptions of the New Cultural History, Anthropology of Religions and at the regional writings, it was possible to understand how the festivities transplanted to Brazil are perched with hybrid elements, as much they reinforce a search for the maintaining of the traditions inherited, of the collective memory linked to the party, the relation between devout and worshiped divinity and also the sociability relations established there.
