FROM A Guajajara TEXT:

Os homens Guajajara fazem artesanato. A madeira para fazer o arco, nós vamos buscar no mato, tiramos a casca branca da madeira e trazemos só o miolo. Quando fazemos a flecha, colocamos em sua ponta um pedaço de ferro ou uma ponta de faca. Os homens também fazem maracás, cestas, quibanos, peneiras, vassouras, tipitis, bolsa de embira, que se chama mocó, pacará, etc.

COMMENTS VERY WELCOME!

The Guajajara men make handcrafts. We get the wood to make a bow in the the forest; we pull the white bark from the
wood and keep only the core. When we make the arrow,
we put a piece of iron or the tip of a knife on the point . The men also make rattles, baskets, big and small sieves, brooms, XXX , mocó (embira bags), pacará, etc.
