Our Celebration (Jane Moraita)

Vincent Carelli

1995, 32:00 minutes, Waiãpi


Directed by Vincent Carelli & Kasiripiña Waiapi

The Waiapi videomaker, Kasiripina, decides to show white people the documentation he did on his people in Amapá. He presents and comments on three celebrations that represent episodes of the myth-cycle of the creation of the universe. The theme of the Tamoko celebration is war. It presents the death of a cannibal monster. In the second celebration, Pikyry, the dancers act out the spawning of fish. The last is the Turé, the dance of flutes, in which the Waiapi reenact the death of the tapir, in honor of the creator, Janejar.
