Iauarete waterfall of the jaguars

A myth illustrated on the stones of a waterfall, the reconstruction of a great communal hut, the attempt to recover objects kept for years in a museum in Manaus - these are all but different ways in which the Tariano of the North-western Amazon, after decades of missionary catechism, aim to make a cultural record for future generations.
