Being the local host of the Indigenous National Festival, the Guarani People are usually very shy, and just a few of them participate of the Festival. Around Bertioga city there are tribes from Guarani's lands. They survive between the transition of being indigenous with access to all the city's culture and consume, but being very poor and denied by the local community and the absence of specific public politics to support their changes.
At this festival they were more than the last two years; a larger group reflecting being confidant and proud of their tradition. Something have been changing there.
Looking the boy smoking, I had some ambiguous feelings.
I hope their traditions stay strong, alive as that spirit's face through the smoke of the pipe.
