Since the year 2000, two youths have participated in the Teacher Training Course, a project of the Instituto Socioambiental in the Indigenous Park of the Xingu. Besides that, the Kamaiurá are organizing the Mavutsinin Association in order to develop specific projects, such as the School for Culture, which has the support of the Funai, in which older men and women teach the children and young people to dance, sing, produce artwork and know the stories of their people.
