Description
Summary:This collection about the Tapirapé consists of nine documents, three of which are translations from the Portuguese. Major contributions to the collection are the works of Baldus, and Wagley, which together form a comprehensive overview of traditional Tapirapé ethnography from 1935 to 1965. Other topics in this collection deal with culture change and acculturation; shamanism; religion, mythology, and ideas about animals and man; puberty rites; feasting and eating groups, and cultural revitalization processes. As of the mid-twentieth century the Tapirapé numbered only about 80 individuals living in a single village at the mouth of the Tapirapé and Araguaia rivers in northeastern Mato Grosso, Brazil.
