This article aimed to revisit a course conclusion work on the Intercultural Training for Indigenous Educators, in Mathematics qualification. The research was carried out in the Caramuru Indigenous village of the Pataxó Hãhãhãe people, researching in a historical-bibliographic way and using documents, books and records that told the history of the people as collection instruments. We also used photographs of the practices of the Pataxó Hãhãhãe people, highlighting the gardens and gardens, in addition to interviewing two members of the village. Highlighting the geometry present in the fields and gardens, so that this knowledge could be registered and remembered, both by the school and in the community, was of great value for the formation and expansion of the researcher's knowledge and for the Pataxó Huhãhãe people. With that, we are valuing and rescuing the traditional knowledge that the people teach us with the experience in the community. The work will also serve as research and encouragement in the community.
