Xingu Waters

Ricardo Teles, Brazil

As the light clears the day in Xingu, the largest indigenous park in the world located in Brazil, there is a mist under the water of their lakes and rivers that dilutes the movement of figures in a coming and going along the beaches that will last all day until the sundown.
These waters translate their culture and myths and also a close link with their ancestry, a place where survival is also sacred. Community life and a healthy relationship with the world that translates into a spirituality linked to the real and invisible phenomena of nature.
Thus, the Xingus people relationship with nature could be the proof that the simplest things are what really matters.
