BakairiSouth Americaother subsistence combinations
The Bakairi are a Carib-speaking group living on Upper Xingu River in the state of Mato Grosso in south central Brazil. They practice slash-and-burn horticulture in the gallery forests along the rivers. They live in seven villages on what is now the Bakairi reservation. Each village has an elected headman, although shamans have some political influence. In general, Bakairi value cooperation, harmony and peace. Division of labor is based on age and gender.
