Strategies developed to improve the lives of people in indigenous communities have not worked when they are created without dialogue with these communities. For this reason, this research aims to analyze the living conditions of Catu indigenous community, located between Goianinha city and Canguaretama city, in the State of Rio Grande do Norte, to create more effective strategies adapted to this community. This research is classified as qualitative, because it seeks the subjective understanding of indigenous peoples using, for this, Participatory Rural Diagnosis. It is also exploratory and descriptive. The result of the research provided a diagnosis and action plan more adapted to the reality of this indigenous community and its surroundings, since the community participated actively through texting, illustrations and reporting about their way of !ife, culture and their environment. Analyzing the infonnation provided frorn the indigenous community we could see, as the Community potential it's their rich cultural heritage and we can perceive that the greatest threat to the community is the cultivation of sugar cane and the growth of urbanization around. In short, we realize that the development of projects for this indigenous community can not be done without the dialogue with the community, because otherwise its not effective and can put at risk the Catu indigenous community and their traditions.
