Ueslei Marcelino goes for a dip
'I always thought the majority of Brazilian Indians had a strong desire to be integrated into urban society, watch TV, movies, drink cold water, and use cell phones. But, after coexisting with Yawalapiti Indians for a few days. I found out this wasn't the case. I spentÂ my first day in their village trying to become one more of their community, and understanding how they lived. I missed wonderful images because I knew I had to gain their confidence without the aggression of photographing. I earned the nickname of Banana, for the bunches of bananas that I carried with me to their village and gained the confidence of many children, who followed me wherever I went. They loved to play in the trees, and during the hottest time of the day they played in the nearby river.'
