The creation of the Brazilian Association of Rock Art-ABAR, was an initiative of Dr. Mila Abreu, from the University of Tras-os-Montes and Alto Douro, on the occasion of the International Congress of Rock Art-IFRAO, an association she chaired at the time and which was held in 1997, in Vila Real, (Portugal). Realizing that the largest group of assistants per country was from Brazil, she proposed to us to create our association. Having gathered the researchers present, we founded ABAR and unanimously named Niède Guidon as its first president, replaced later by Anne-Marie Pessis. Until November 2007, its President was Gabriela Martin.
After the meeting on November 16, 2007, ABAR was composed as follows:
• President: Niéde Guidon
• Vice President: Maria da Conceição Meneses Lage
• Secretary: Daniela Cisneiros
• Treasurer: Gabriela Martin Ávila
• Fiscal Council: Carlos Alberto Etchevarne, Silvia Maranca and Edith da Silva Pereira.
ABAR was registered as a non-profit scientific association at the Registry Office of São Raimundo Nonato, PI.
After the first meeting held in Brazil, in 2000, at the headquarters of the Museum of the American Man Foundation, in São Raimundo Nonato, PI, it was decided that the following meetings were also held within the Serra da Capivara National Park, given that The park has the largest concentration of sites with prehistoric rock records in the world, in addition to having been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
The ABAR meeting held in 2004 was of an international nature, dedicated mainly to the problems of preserving rock art in areas declared World Heritage, preservation strategies and new survey and registration techniques.
The results of the ABAR meetings have been published in the FUMDHAMENTOS Magazine of the Museu do Homem Americano Foundation.
