Sombras Invisibles: Las representaciones de niños y niñas Miraña en una comunidad Tikuna.

This article makes an analysis of 3 paintings drawn by Miraña ethnic children in Macedonia (high Amazon), the interpretation of the painting was analyzed from the intentional and conscious transmission that converts images into models to guide drivers explanations by the authors. The explanations are linked to the fact that it was generated within a pluriethnic and multicultural community, which is why their analysis became aware of different cultural actors are negotiating within the same values, thus establishing a link between the ethnic groups that compose it, encouraging a dialogue with the world "spiritual" (tras-traditional and/or evangelical) becoming the inspiration of the children in a translation of their reality as well as in intercultural negotiations, which could change the interpretation and belief of the existence of microcosm.
