A'uwe Uptabi (True Xavante) Indigenous Warrior

by David Hernández-Palmar

Framed Art Print

DESCRIPTION

Choose from a variety of frame styles, colors and sizes to compliment your favorite Society6 gallery, or fine art print - made ready to hang. Fine-crafted from solid woods, premium shatterproof acrylic protects the face of the art print, while an acid free dust cover on the back provides a custom finish. All framed art prints include wall hanging hardware.

The Xavante (A'uwe) are an indigenous people, comprising some 12.000 individuals within the territory of eastern Mato Grosso state in Brazil. They speak the Xavante language, part of the Jé language family. The Xavante leader Mário Juruna was the first indigenous Brazilian to become a federal representative. The Xavante are also known for their initiation rituals for young males, such as when small wooden sticks are inserted in the earlobes. As time passes, the size of these adornments is increased for the rest of their lives.

In 1996 the Brazilian heavy metal band Sepultura stayed and recorded with the Xavante people, who featured on their album Roots. A small number of Xavante even travelled to São Paulo to partake in Sepultura's Barulho Contra Fome (Noise Against Hunger) concert in 1998 that marked the start of their tour for their follow-up album, Against where their presence was featured in the music video for the song "Choke".

This photo was taken in 2006 at a protest in Nova Xavantina Mato Grosso Brazil, while filming "Owners of the Water".
