Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
Certain aspects of the culture of the Bakairi Indians of
Mato Grosso are briefly described: their technology, kinship terminology, pantheon,
ceremonies, shamanism, and the series of ritualistic seclusions, or UANKI, that occur at
intervals during the life cycle: at birth, at puberty, at death, and upon becoming a
shaman. Ritualistic seclusion, or UANKI, is a means of defense against harm of supernatural
origin, and also for becoming shaman.
