This really cool documentary produced by Current TV network takes you to a Kamayurá indians village in the upper Xingu river, in the state of Mato Grosso. You will have an overview of their community, daily life, food and rituals.
You can also find tons of information about the Kamayurá and other native Brazilian groups in Portuguese, English and Spanish on the Instituto Socioambiental portal.
