10 – Immigration, History

This series contains information on immigration history to Brazil, with a strong focus on Ukrainian immigration. Some interviews and documents describe particular migration stories, and others provide more generalized narratives. Early years in the cities and in the colonias predominate, though historical and family developments throughout the 20th centuries are included, such as secondary migration into northwest Paraná, the anti-ethnic tension in the period of World War Two, later waves of immigration, and relations with Ukraine. A subseries devoted to Ethnic Public Monuments focuses strongly on Ukrainian commemorations, but include those of neighbouring ethnic groups. Items produced as Ukrainian national symbols are collected into a separate subseries, strongly connected with materials in the series on Organized Life and on the Ukrainian churches. The subseries on Museums contains documentation of the physical structures of the museums, and overviews of their collections and presentation. If a photograph or other document focuses on a particular museum object, it is placed in the series on Settlements, Agriculture, Homelife, Organized Life, or Church Life, as most relevant. A smaller subseries is devoted to Education, and particularly Ukrainian educational materials and activities in Brazil. Documentation about general Brazilian historical culture, treated self-consciously as “heritage” is also found here (materials about old houses, historic transport, pioneering farming practices for example).

This series contains materials associated with agriculture, agricultural practices, and tools, including contemporary agriculture, as well as remnants and remembrances of practices from the past. The idea of agriculture is treated broadly here, and this series includes related traditional activities and crafts such as animal husbandry, textile making, lumbering, hunting, stonework, shoemaking, barrel making, and others. Information specifically about plants and animals is collected in a special subseries.
