Abstract: Intestinal parasites infect a large parcel of the world population and are prevalent in poor communities. In indigenous communities, the environment is highly favourable to the spread of these parasitic agents due to poor sanitation, unhealthy eating habits, lack of personal hygiene among other factors. Objective: perform an investigation about the incidence of parasites in three communities of the Potiguar ethnic group located in the city of Baía da Traição, Province of Paraíba, Brazil. Methods: the raw material consisted by 109 feces samples from people of Coqueirinho, São Miguel and Forte communities. The feces were preserved in 10% formalin solution. Coproscopies were performed by the techniques of Hoffman, Pons and Janer and by the technique of Ritchie and stained with the Kinyoun method in the Research Laboratory on Parasitic Diseases of the UNIABEU University Center, in the city of Belford Roxo, Province of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Results: the overall parasitism rate was 80.73%, which were geographically distributed: Coqueirinho community 78.13%, São Miguel community 93.75% and Forte community 73.33%. Conclusion: the knowledge of the parasitic agents in the indigenous community of the Potiguar ethnic group was the basis for an adequate drug intervention. It also reveals the requirement for the implementation of governmental and socio-educational measures in order to improve the living conditions of these communities.
