ABSTRACT
Barra do Garças is a city established in a historical consciousness dependent on the narrative of Valdon Varjão. The performative discourse prepared a city seized myths. The narrator and the city become confused in the own narrative. The power and the symbolic strength belong to the consolidation and recognition of the local narrative praxis. The time constituted as historical is manifested in synchrony between past, present and future. The teleological posture is outstanding in the writing of the history of Barra do Garças. History of the city is possible if memory is respected and worshipped.
