In the Kalapalo cosmogony (an ethnic group that lives in the Xingú Indigenous Park), water is as old as humans and is the source of life. That is where all their sustenance comes from, their food, their drink, their joy. The idea of using water as a dumpster, of poisoning water is a dystopia. In Tuã Ingugu (Water Eyes) Chief Faremá - from Caramujo village on the banks of the Kuluene River - tells us about the birth of water and warns us about the consequences of disrespecting it.
