Based on the analysis of conflict between Mbyá communities and forest enterprises in the Yabotí Biosphere Reserve (Misiones), I outline as references to the nature conservation areintegrated by these communities in a process of construction of political demands. Thesedemands are aimed at restoring the place of indigenous representatives to the "ManagementCommittee" of the Yabotí Biosphere Reserve. Communities deepen a "political opportunitystructure" entering into alliances with environmentalists and indigenous sectorsand questioning to the network of links organized around this category of conservationpromoted by Unesco. I reinstate in the analyzed process as is practical tensioned and socialcategories relating to the political role of the indigenous subjects in "participatory" naturemanagement initiatives, pointing out also as the process communities generate environmentallyinformed political action modes.
