Abstract: _Dengue remains an important public health problem in Brazil. We estimated the associated factors of dengue seroprevalence among native Indians of the Tremembé ethnic and their knowledge about the aspects related to the presence of mosquitoes of the genus Aedes. METHODS_ An analytical cross-sectional study and a prospective environmental study to monitor the trapping of mosquito eggs monthly were performed. The serological portion of the study involved indigenous people living in the village of Tapera in northeastern Brazil. Ovitraps were monitored for 12 months. RESULTS_ Two hundred and ninety of 350 indigenous people (82.9%) participated in the study, with an average age of 30.2 years. The seroprevalence was 22.1% and positivity increased with age, with rates of 4.2% in children under 15 years of age, 26.8% in 15 to 59-year-olds and 42.3% in those older than 59 (CI_ 2.25-15.96
