    Abstract : Pataxó craft made at Coroa Vermelha village has always been a part of the warehouse activities held at the region. As mass tourism grew since 1970, this craftsmanship acquires new meanings. In 2000, a center of native handicrafts was created. During the summer of 2010 a survey with 28 of 300 Pataxó stores was conducted to investigate circulation, production and meaning of native handicrafts. Regarding production, Pataxó craftsmanship suffered a great standardization in Regardint circulation process an unequal appropriation of profitability was found. As for meaning, two kinds were observed, handicraft is either local art or touristic souvenir.
