Annotation
Moments of the great shamanic rite "Uneni", performed by the shaman every 3 years for his patron spirit. The ceremony was performed for several days with a move from one camp to another: it was accompanied by a visit to all the houses, treats, performances and games. Before the start of the ceremony, the hunters danced, then the shaman left the tent and performed the ritual.
