Rare access captures dances and feasts of Amazonian chief's funeral ritual
The loss of Chief Aritana of the Yawalapiti people to COVID-19 in August has shaken the Xingu, leaving its tribes without a strong leader and able negotiator to unite them against mounting pressures on Brazil’s agricultural frontier, which has advanced across the Cerrado savanna and into the Amazon rainforest.

Tapi Yawalapiti, a Yawalapiti cacique (chief), walks alongside women during the closing of the Kuarup funeral ritual to honor the memory of his father Cacique Aritana, at the Xingu Indigenous Park in Brazil, September 12, 2021. Besieged by loggers, gold miners, cattle ranchers and soy farmers, the Xingu communities are facing growing degradation of their natural habitat whose rich biodiversity they need to preserve for future generations, says Yawalapiti. "We are not united today. The Xingu no longer has someone who can organize all the chiefs," Yawalapiti said. "Our main challenge is to come together again to save our lands."

Yawalapiti men decorate tree trunks that represent distinguished people who have recently died during the Kuarup funeral ritual to honor the memory of Cacique Aritana, at the Xingu Indigenous Park in Brazil, September 11, 2021. COVID-19 has killed 12 people in the community, and all adults have been vaccinated now against the virus. The dead were mostly elders who took with them knowledge of the Yawalapiti's past, stories and songs that keep their culture alive. The spirits of the dead were honored with four painted tree trunks placed at the center of the circular village. REUTERS/Ueslei Marcelino SEARCH "MARCELINO KUARUP" FOR THIS STORY.
