Xingu Indians of Brazil


My Trip Living with the Xingu Indians
By Bob Mauer

My visit with the Xingu Indians was filled with excitement, cultural upheaval and history.  The Xingu people, one of the oldest Indian tribe, live in a preserved national park in Brazil. Xingu peoples are the people of Brazil living near the river Xingu. They have many similarities of cultures despite their distinctive ethnologies. These people represent 15 tribes and have four groups of indigenous language, but all of them have the same rituals and perform similar ceremonies.

Everything about these people is fascinating and different from the modern world.  They are protected under the FUNAI Agency and they have all the right to utilize their land according to their wishes. FUNAI official logo

Everything about them is fascinating and interesting which you can only experience after visiting them.  Join me on an adventure to the unknown and slightly different culture, people and their living.

Arrival at the Baron do Garças

After my arrival at the airport a tour guide picked me up and we started our journey. If you are interested in going on a short city trip your tour guide will take you there. You can go for it as it is the best way to take the glimpse of the experience you are about to take. In the evening I was back and had a stay in the hotel so that can prepare for the next day excitement.

After taking breakfast I started my journey to Barro do Garças in the morning which is about 45 km from the hotel. This ride was slightly tiring and exhausting but my excitement was so high that I felt like never before. The diversity of the state will provide you an idea about the vastness of the country.

My experience and learning’s

I was privileged to see so many things and had a great experience with the Xingu Indians. The people live in the Xingu national park which was created fifty years ago and it is the home of the approximately six thousand Xingu Indians.The people are very welcoming and perform a welcoming ceremony when someone arrives and I was the lucky one to be part of the ceremony. It was very good to see people of different culture having no touch with the outer world still living their lives like humans used to live in the olden ages.

The whole tribe is under the chief who guides and advice and also takesdecisions on the half of the tribe. Though their style of living is very old but they also take advantage of the technology such as motor boats. It was a very good experience and I also learnt that these people are suffering from lot of difficulties. It is important to preserve the most important and valuable assets because it is the last Indian tribe left on the earth.

    I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself
    and clear your thoughts before writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas
    out. I truly do enjoy writing however it just
    seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any suggestions or tips? Thank you!

  2. I have been exploring for a little for any high quality articles or weblog posts

  4. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it
    seems as though you relied on the video to make your
    point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your
    blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  5. Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had
    written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I
    too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new
    to everything. Do you have any recommendations for first-time blog writers?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.

    my very own website and would like to learn where you got this from or exactly what
    the theme is named. Kudos!

    an extremely neatly written article. I will be sure to bookmark
    it and return to read extra of your helpful information. Thanks for the post.
    I will definitely return.

  8. Thanks for any other informative website. The place else may I am getting that type
    of information written in such a perfect means? I have a undertaking
    that I am simply now running on, and I’ve been at
    the glance out for such info.

  9. Knowing the most common mistakes and how to correct them will help
    the convict to make an informed decision. In addition, when you
    file your taxes, you will be required to claim the withdrawal
    and you may have to pay an additional 10 percent penalty to the Internal Revenue Service.
    This is equivalent to 1 gram of alcohol for every 500-gram measure of your blood.

  10. Different countries have different drunk driving penalties.
    Those who are also under the influence of substances like cocaine, marijuana,
    and other intoxicants are prohibited from driving as per the law.

    Partying and going overboard in drinking is a likelihood affair with every
    other person.

  11. May I simply just say what a relief to find someone who really knows what they’re discussing on the internet.
    You certainly realize how to bring a problem to
    light and make it important. More people have to read this and understand this
    side of the story. I can’t believe you aren’t more popular since you definitely have the gift.

  12. I believe everything wrote was actually very logical.
    But, think about this, what if you wrote a catchier post title?
    I ain’t suggesting your information is not solid., but suppose
    you added a headline that grabbed a person’s attention?
    I mean Xingu Indians of Brazil | Travel with Stanito is kinda vanilla.
    You should look at Yahoo’s front page and note
    how they create news headlines to grab viewers to click. You might try adding a video or
    a related picture or two to grab people interested
    about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.

  13. Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested
    to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube
    sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with
    someone!

    When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has
    some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!

    Other then that, great blog!

  18. Once there, they will tell you that you need this,
    this, and this. Blow the dust away and spray primer paint thoroughly.
    At a price of around twenty bucks each year, it is possible to
    purchase a domain name and create a web page.
