Transcript of Kayapo of South America

Rachel The Kayapo believe that the first of their people descended from the sky from a cotton rope. Brief History of the Kayapo People Interpretation Kayapo People of South America Kayapo People of
South America http://indiancultures.com/Cultures/kayapo.html Blake Blake Rachel Sandra Sandra Sam Sam NDW 4M NDW 4M music Marlui Miranda is an authority on native Brazilian music and its consummate performer. She worked with Hector Babenco in the film "At Play in the Fields of the Lord," and is a recipient of several grants including a Guggenheim. In "Ihu Todos os sons," Marlui recorded 17 songs from 12 different Indian nations, with guests Gilberto Gil, Uakti and Grupo Beijo, among others. In addition to adapting and arranging all of the music, she sings and plays guitar and an Indian bamboo flute, called Kukuta. What a treat. Marlui made her American debut in November of 1996 on a tour that included Miami and New York. And she's coming back! We talked to Marlui in Florida and fell in love with her! You can read her interview too!

Marlui also makes sure the Indians benefit financially from the recording. The tribes receive the money, because the music belongs mostly to their tradition and not to a specific person. The hard part is getting the money to them...no bank accounts, as you can imagine, and for the most part, no mail service. So, she has to wait until someone goes to wherever they are to bring them the money. And sometimes, they ask to be paid in pencils or books or any need they have. better for showing (pics) and -indios brasileiros -culture - sam ;) <-- Want to learn more? http://www.leslietaylor.net/gallery/kayapo.htm http://www.vanderbilt.edu/AnS/Anthro/Anth210/kayapo.htm http://www.survivalinternational.org/tribes/brazilian http://www.everyculture.com/wc/Brazil-to-Congo-Republic-of/Kayapos.html http://indian-cultures.com/Cultures/kayapo.html This traditional head dress is also symbolic of other Kayapo beliefs.
