We introduce the dual Roe algebras for proper étale groupoid actions and deduce the expected Higson–Roe short exact sequence. When the action is co-compact, we show that the Roe $C^*$-ideal of locally compact operators is Morita equivalent to the reduced $C^*$-algebra of our groupoid, and we further identify the boundary map of the associated periodic six-term exact sequence with the Baum–Connes map, via a Paschke–Higson map for groupoids. For proper actions on continuous families of manifolds of bounded geometry, we associate with any $G$-equivariant Dirac-type family, a coarse index class which generalizes the Paterson index class and also the Moore–Schochet Connes’ index class for laminations.

Keywords: Coarse geometry, index theory, K-theory of $C^*$-algebras, Morita equivalence, Baum–Connes conjecture, Higson–Roe analytic surgery sequence
