Description:The young Jamalui walks in a "pequizal" (place where pequi trees, Caryocar brasilienese, were planted by the owner of the "pequizal"), not far from the village; he is collecting fruits, showing and describing different types of the fruits (pequi species). On the background, it is possible to hear the strong sound of the cicadas, characteristic of the end of the dry season, the pequi fruits time. After this, Jamalui goes back to the village carrying some pequi fruits. He reachs the house of Tsana, a mature man and a ritual specialist. Inside the house, Tsana is making a very traditional and valued piece of the upper Xingu karib groups material culture: a necklace made with terrestrial snails. Jamalui shows to him the fruits that he found in the "pequizal", puts them on the ground and begins a conversation with the other man, asking for explanations on the "pequi way of being". Tsana explains the native know-how for storing the pequi pulp, some aspects of the pequi economy and ritual cycle. He talks about the Hugagü feast (or ritual) and sings some Hugagü songs (birds songs and the fox song).
