YAWALAPITI TRIBE MEMBER PERFORMS SPIRITUAL DANCE RITUAL AT XINGU
RESERVE IN LOWER AMAZON. 
A member of the Yawalapiti tribe member plays a Urua flute as part of a
ritual of "good energies," at their village in Alto Xingu in the lower
Amazon, May 12, 2002. Four tribe members go from hut to hut, performing
the ritual the during year leading up to a Quarup festival, or 'ritual
of the dead'. 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, which takes place in the year following
the death of a tribe member of chieftan family lineage. SECOND OF SIX
