Bororo

Bororo

 

an Indian tribe in eastern Brazil, living in the southern part of the state of Mato Grosso. Some investigators include the Bororo language in the Gê (Gez) language group, and others consider it isolated. The Bororo economy combined farming, hunting, and fishing. Vestiges of matrilineal tribal relationships were preserved in their way of life. In the 19th century a considerable number of the Bororo were annihilated by Brazilian colonists or assimilated by them. Most of the survivors (there are no population figures) were placed on reservations.

Despues de analizarlo y compararlo con otros mitos del mismo tipo, como el de los Bororo, del valle alto del Rio Paraguay, Levi-Strauss llega a afirmar lo siguiente:
Melangell in Berwyn Range in Powys, Wales, as an example; the influence of wind and water on the sensory qualities of specific settings or spaces; the sacred geography of where the physical world and otherworlds meet; Bronze Age ritualized deposition; how and why specific places were chosen for rock art; shamanism as an ageless religion depending on the environment, ecosystems, and biotopes; how the bird-nester myth from the Bororo Indians of Central Brazil describe the initiation of an apprentice shaman; the relationship between the bear, the moon, other cosmological entities, and the ability of the shaman; and current views of what shamanism represents and how it fits within non-Western indigenous societies around the world.
