BRANDAO, Viviane Bernadeth Gandra  and  ALVES, Vânia de Fátima Noronha. The young Catopê and its educational processes in the face of our Lady of the Rosary, in Montes Claros. Educação. Porto Alegre [online]. 2021, vol.44, n.2, e33808.  Epub Apr 25, 2022. ISSN 1981-2582.

This study analyzes the formative dynamics of young people, who practice Congado (religious manifestation typical of blacks), observing their educational processes and constitution in the second suit of the Catopês de Nossa Senhora in Montes Claros in the north of Minas Gerais. They stand out for being the one with the largest number of young people who express in their practices a mixture of Luso, African and Catholic religious rites. This work is based on the relationship between education and culture, based on the assumption that the constructions of the educational processes experienced by young people from Catopês in this event contribute to the continuity of their subjective formation. It is an exploratory qualitative research with an ethnographic approach, through participant observation, interviews and the realization of a focus group. The results allow reflection on the current meaning of a lasting tradition for a specific group of subjects, a relationship between culture and education.

Keywords : Education; youth; religious tradition.
