Agouti’s Peanut (Kiarãsã Yõ Sâty)
Komoi Panará, Paturi Panará
2005 | 51 min | Brazil
During the peanut harvest, the Panará people of Amazonian Brazil celebrate the agouti, the squirrelly rodent that led them to discover that the legume grows in abundance just beneath their feet. As they remember the days before the discovery of the peanut—how they used to share pancakes made out of rotting wood—they take part in elaborate dances, smoke tobacco, share laughs, and pass around a small effigy of the adorable creature.
