A 15 year old Ikpeng Indian from Parque do Xingú in Mato Grosso state, who is the first woman to integrate the Video in the Villages’ team. Initiated to the workshop in 1999, Natuyu, being the youngest student of the project, became a great revelation at the 2001 workshop.

Co-author of the Ikpeng children’s video-letter and the re-filming of the Moyngo ritual, Natuyu is also realizing a documentary about a woman in her village, the elder Yawulú.
Title: Moyngo - The dream of Maragareum

Four Ikpeng children introduce their village answering a video-letter from the children from Sierra Maestra in Cuba. They show their families, their toys, their celebrations, their way of life with grace and lightheartedness.
Curious to know about children from other cultures, they ask that their video–letter be answered.
