The Yawanawás Indians inhabit the Mutum Village, in the Indigenous Land of the Gregório River, in the Acre part of the Amazon. The visitor should go with an open mind, ready to see painted Indians (with or without clothes), try paca meat (or monkey, or capybara...), and sleep in a hammock. However, the most important thing during this visit is to respect their culture and customs. The mastery of craft techniques is restricted to older women. Among the diverse cultural production, what stands out is the body designs used in saiti made from annatto and genipapo secured to the skin by a resin. Men make weapons such as spears, bows, arrows and clubs. Handicrafts produced by women are pottery, baskets, lines and drawings. However, Yawanawá produce handicrafts mainly for domestic consumption. Their festivities have a great socio-political importance, because they maintain the internal and external relations. The generic name given to the festivities is saiti, which means “scream”. Their food base is based on hunting and fishing. In agriculture, they get the complement of their nutrition. Among the most prized crops are cassava, corn and bananas, but they also plant rice, sweet potato, papaya, pineapple and sugarcane.
