Alto Xingu, Brazil -
A Yawalapiti indian exits a hut playing an Urua flute as part of a
dance and music ritual of "good energies", inside their village in the
Alto Xingu, part of the lower Amazon, on May 12, 2002. A group of two
to four indians march from hut to hut for several consecutive hours,
welcoming good spirits. Most impressive of all is the way the
Yawalipiti rejoice in their feasts and traditions. Naked, except for
feather headdresses, paint from neck to ankle and belts with tassels
over the genitals, the tribe's men and women practice the kuarup dance,
marching back in forth in the central area of the village. Life is
still communal, with each hut housing an extended family, and everyone
sleeps in hammocks. The Yawalapiti are one of 17 tribes living inside
the Xingu Indigenous Park, a reserve created in 1961 roughly the size
of Belgium, to protect the indians, and is home to an estimated 4,000
people. REUTERS/Gregg Newton FOR RELEASE WITH FEATURE BRAZIL-INDIAN
