9780987860132: The Jaguar People: The Amazon Exploration Series (Volume 14)

The name "The Jaguar People" is an honorary title given by the author to three Amazonian tribes who derive their inspiration and cultural traditions from the jaguar--the Marayonas, the Pirahas and the Ashanikas. Among these Amazonian tribes we can observe common survival characteristics such as fishing and hunting for their primary food sources. There are only a handful of Amazonian tribes the still practice this ancient way of life. An indeterminate number of cosmological levels constitute the indigenous universe of good and evil spirits. The primary ornamental facial designs of these three tribes, however, pay mystical homage to the jaguar and its incredible hunting skills. The revered jaguar personifies the power and courage exhibited by the tribal hunters in pursuit of their prey. This engaging numbered series book gives the reader a glimpse into the unique lives of three Amazonian tribes, some of which still live in a primary "state of nature." This real life illustrated book is recommended for the entire family, for elementary and middle schools, anthropologists, naturalists and collectors of The Amazon Exploration Series.
