This article is a multi-voiced report on an innovative method of teaching an introductory course on Amazonian ethnology at the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology of the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich. This course foregrounds the voices of indigenous colleagues of the postgraduate program of social anthropology (PPGAS) of the Federal University of Amazonas (UFAM). Indigenous interlocutors open up (via videoconference) a panorama of contemporary lifeworlds in Amazonia and reflect on it with their different approach of an Antropologia Indígena. This seminar amounts to a modest, albeit effective decolonizing method of teaching anthropology.
