This paper explores connections between spirituality and creativity in indigenous communities, and their link to spiritual intelligence. Some spiritual and creative characteristics of Brazilian indigenous peoples are described, as well as their legacy to Brazilian culture and creative giftedness. The paper concludes that Brazilian people have inherited a rich imagination, permeable culture, and many animist elements from the indigenous societies, which are factors that contribute to creative expression and the blossoming of spiritual intelligence.
