The Girl's Celebration

Carelli, Vincent; Kanopy (Firm)
Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
The Nambiquara of Mato Grosso are trying to re-establish their traditional practices. In The Girl's Celebration a girl undergoes puberty rites after her first menstruation, entering seclusion for several months; a neighboring village is then invited to fetch her out of isolation and to take part in a feast and celebration. Ceremonies like this double as political events, strengthening ties between Nambiquara and other Indian groups, and watching video footage of the ceremony allows the people of the village to assess themselves and their visitors. Video also allows the Nambiquara to proudly record the revival of their most distinctive practice: the lip and nose-piercing of boys. Filmmaker: Vincent Carelli
