Around tribe members painted red from seeds from local shrubs, various baskets and carrying straps made from plant fibers can be seen, which are used to store vegetables and carry game and fish.

A white pile of peeled manioc (also known as cassava) sits at left of the tribe, a staple part of the group's diet, providing starches. Bitter manioc is peeled, soaked, grated and turned into loaves of bread, Survival International said.
