In Brazil, where forest meets savanna, new towns, agribusiness and hydroelectricity plants form a patchwork with the indigenous territories of the Enawene-nawe people. Agricultural work, fishing, songs, feasts, and exchanges occupy the Enawene-nawe for eight months of each year, during a season called Yankwa. Vital Diplomacy focuses on this major ceremonial cycle to shed new light on classic Amazonian themes such as kin, clan, and gender relations, manioc cultivation and cuisine, predatory relations with non-humans, and the interplay of myth and practice.
