Contributor (compiler):Bruna Franchetto

Description:Dance and songs of the ear pearcing ritual, called tiponhü in the Kuikuro language (tiponhü means "the one who was ear-pearced"). It is a performance made during the ritual cycle that precedes the ear pearcing of the boys to be initiated to the adulthood. The boys of chiefly lines are at the center of the group of singers and dancers. With feather headresses and all the male ornaments, they show their white skin and the beauty of their strong and fat bodies. Around them and taking their hands, men are dancing and singing, conducted by the ritual leader. The songs are ritual formulas with some near inintelligible karib words. At the end, one of the dancers/singers, a Kuikuro leader, Jumu, seated on the bench in front of the kwakutu (menÂ?s house), explains the meaning of the performance and the continuity of the kuikuro tradition.
