Edited film from the 1971 Yanomamo film project shot in the Amazon Basin of southern Venezuela and northern Brazil between the Negro and the Upper Orinoco rivers. One of two related films which presents a versions of the myth of "Naro the Ugly" which deals with Naro's jealousy over his brother's wives. The myth describes the origins of harmful magic among the Yanomamo. Viewed in conjunction with the film MYTH OF NARO AS TOLD BY KAOBAWA, it provides a comparative view of narrative performance and oratorical style among the Yanomamo.
