The environmental agenda is a current and present topic on agendas, whether national, international, official or not. It is also popular in academia. As a prerequisite for defending a doctorate, we present our thesis study on the following pages. Titled this: THE PHYSIOGNOMY OF THE ARAGUAIA RIVER: COMPLEXITIES AND AMBIGUITIES PRINTED IN ITS HYDROLOGICAL SIGNATURE. For the basis of our research, we rely on the assumptions of Environmental History. It proposes a rapprochement between man and nature, a movement towards revealing the relationships between social and natural systems. Since people's lives and nature are intertwined in the course of human history, it is fair to say that, in fact, it is an effort to make us aware that we all belong to a universal system. For this premise, we used, as a contribution to the study, the methodology of Systemic Analysis. However, because it is a research based on Environmental History, we emphasize, due to the interdisciplinary nature of the research field, that the reader will find other mechanisms that subsidized us in our immersion in the Araguaia River system. By the logic of Systemic Analysis, we proposed to unravel the relationships carried out in the scope of the mentioned system, as well as the representations, about it, elaborated. We consider, to support our thesis that the climatic, geological, geomorphological conditions present in the Araguaia river system were configured and remain as the attracting elements for human settlement in the surroundings of the referred river, the multiple actors that, in the course of anthropization or even, prior to this, they established relations with the Araguaia River. Therefore, the reader will be presented, in the body of this thesis, to our perceptions about the constitution of the Araguaia river system, the impact of human occupations within this system, the urgency of reorganization on the part of social actors, especially the Iny᷉peoples. , for the conformation of existence.
