Description:Several villagers are going to their farm (in this case Mariuza and Apolinário’s farm) to collect corn and fire wood. Farms are usually fairly close to the houses in the forest and planted predominantly with corn and sweet manioc, but also different types of yam, cará and squash, as well as beans, peanuts among other things. In less quantity one can find cotton, urucum (or annatto) used for red paint and papaya trees, thus, overall a similar picture of agricultural products that are described by travelling scientists in the early twentieth and mid twentieth century (e.g. Nordenskiöld 1924 [1915], Becker-Donner 1955: 277 etc.). However, due to the decline in hand-spun material culture and body painting, as well as the use of homegrown tobacco, these plants have lost their significance and are present only in some farms. Striking in the farms of the Aikanã, in comparison to many other indigenous groups of the Amazon, is the absence of bitter manioc. The anthropologist Maldi (1991) saw this, together with the absence of manioc flour in the diet and the predominant consumption of corn chicha (haki’mu) as particularly characteristic of the indigenous people of the Guaporé and western affluent of the Mamóre region. However, while the Aikanã eat the sweet manioc usually boiled, they also grate them into a dough to make bread, as demonstrated in videos of this DOBES-archive on the making of “ball-bread“ (pão bola) and manioc flat cakes (beiju or nhanẽ) roasted inside banana leaves. Next to chicha, corn is usually eaten boiled in the form of a soup with hunted meat, as well as dried and pounded or made into a kind of leaf-wrapped corn cake.
