This dissertation discusses the approach of the concepts of place and memory and the possibilities of approach through the movement of the cangaço by the bias of humanist geography, having as object of study the band of cangaceiros of Marcelinos, in Cariri, Ceará, presenting the municipality of Barbalha as a spatial outline. The discussion about the concepts of place and memory is the basis for an approach to vernacular geographies through the popular knowledge that cangaceiros had, given the historical-geographical context they experienced, which allowed them to recognize the landscapes and, through their performance, they were being re-signified as toponymy, marking places where they passed. The experience of cangaceiros in Chapada do Araripe constituted a geography of the cangaço of the gang of Marcelinos. Thus, they begin their performance as cangaceiros by an act of revenge, based on the notion of “cabra macho”, as a northeastern backcountry clad in the honor of the backcountry moral code. The places of action emerge through the narratives of the subjects who were part of the research as monuments, spaces of disputed memory for maintenance or forgetfulness. The cangaceira relations that were developed in Chapada do Araripe characterized this space as a place; for the gang of Marcelinos, given the topophilia between the gang and the Chapada, marked by their places of action and, for the subjects, by the maintenance and celebration of the gang’s memory and its cangaceira geography.
