The Yanomami People: How and Why They Live in the Rainforest
Transcript of The Yanomami People: How and Why They Live in the Rainforest
What do the Yanomami Eat?
The Yanomami people grow corn (maize) and other vegetables. they also grow tobacco and cotton which is needed to make hammocks, nets, containers and clothing. They gather fruits, nuts, seeds,grubs and honey and hunt monkeys, deer, tapirs, fowl, armadillos and fish.
The Yanomami people live in small, scattered, independent communities. They live in large, communal houses called yanos or shabonos. These are vine and leaf thatched houses surrounded by garden plots. The Yanomami relocate their villages when the soil wears out or it is too easy to be attacked.
The Yanomami people migrated and continue to live in the rainforest because the rainforest provides food and shelter in abundance. The Amazon rainforest provides peace, beauty and tranquility for the most isolated tribe in the Amazon- the Yanomami.
