The Yawalapiti live in the southern part of the Xingu Indian Park, a region which has become known as the Upper Xingu, where different language-speaking groups in large part share the same cosmological repertoire, have similar ways of life and are interconnected through commercial trade, marriages and inter-village cerimonies. While general information on the Upper Xingu may be found on the page dedicated to the Park, this section reports on aspects of the Yawalapiti version of the Upper Xingu world, as well as several specific characteristics of this group.
