Abstract : This paper presents the first results obtained from an exploratory study conducted with a Wayana-Apalaï indigenous community living in the High Maroni region in French Guiana. The study is situated within an ecological and interactionist approach and attempts 1 to understand educational family practices and community logic of the training of children and 2 to describe parents- expectations vis-à-vis their children as a postmodern dynamic. The ethnographic corpus was gathered during a period of five years with the aim to link observed behaviors with contextual and cultural variables. Following the analysis of the data, the authors propose a diagram of a the micro-systems structuring the Wayana-Apalaï kinship system; b a description of parental roles and educational functions; and c an overview of parental expectations in terms of -traditional success-school success-.
