Yawalapiti men perform a dance in the Xingu National Park
Yawalapiti men perform a dance in the Xingu National Park, Mato Grosso State, May 7, 2012. In August the Yawalapiti tribe will hold the Quarup, which is a ritual held over several days to honour in death a person of great importance to them. This year the Quarup will be honouring two people - a Yawalapiti Indian who they consider a great leader, and Darcy Ribeiro, a well-known author, anthropologist and politician known for focusing on the relationship between native peoples and education in Brazil.
