A Yawalapiti tribe member carries a supply of wild manioc to her hut
just after sunrise in her Alto Xingu village in the lower Amazon
region, May 13, 2002. Manioc is a staple of the Yawalapiti, although it
is poisonous in its raw form. The women must grate it and wash it,
which removes the poison, then dry the flower into cakes, which takes
the form of "beiju" porridge. Once on the border of extinction, the
Yawalapiti have built their tribe up to 180 members from just seven
some 50 years ago through inter-marriage with other Xinguano tribes in
the same cultural area. The tribe lives almost exclusively from fishing
and are famous for their "Quarup" festival; a 'ritual of the dead',
which is performed in the year following the death of a tribe member of
chieftan family lineage. SIXTH OF SIX PICTURES REUTERS/Gregg Newton
