The sandy banks of the pristine Gregorio River. Samauma, the queen of the forest. Yawanawá man consecrating his Rumã (rapé) under the Samauma. Macaw enjoying a moments rest. View from Nova Esperança village over the forest. Tsunu bark harvested to make ash for Rapé. Cacique (chief) Biraci on a fishing trip. Young Yawanawá piloting a boat the old fashioned way. Diving and fishing. Throwing a net the way only a chief throws it. Taking some Rapé while on a break. Sharpening a machete for clearing a plantation. Dragging the boat to deeper water. O young Yawanawá navigator The days catch. Playing the guitar and singing songs in the afternoon. Sisters. Sun setting over the forest signalling the end of a well spent day in paradise.
