Edited film from the 1968 Yanomamo film project shot in the Amazon Basin of southern Venezuela and northern Brazil between the Negro and the Upper Orinoco rivers. Film documents a village feast held to re-establish an alliance between two Yanomamo groups, the Patanowa-teri and the Mahekodo-teri. At this ceremonial event, Yanomamo men adorn their bodies with paint and feathers and display their strength in dance and ritualized aggression. The film provides a context for understanding the social, political, and economic entailments of ceremonial reciprocity among the Yanomamo.
