Highlights of Tucandeira Ants Ritual In The Amazon

We invite you to a fascinating tour where we will enter the mystery that surrounds the Sateré-Mawé Tucandeira Aint ritual, which is performed as a form of male initiation. The rite marks the passage of children into adulthood and has remained the same for many generations.

Join us on a journey through an ancestral culture in the heart of the jungle, to be part of this experience with one of the oldest tribes in the Amazon, the Sateré-Mawé.

Details of Day Tours

We will leave Manaus at 09:00 am in our land transport to Ariau, and then take a 45 minute boat ride to the home of the Trible Sateré Mawé.

Upon arrival at noon, we will have a typical indigenous lunch, where the main ingredient is ants, a food that is not lacking in jungle meals. Then, the members of the tribe will explain to us everything about the Indian pharmacy, the natural medicine produced by the leaves and barks of the trees, valuable information that most of us Westerners have forgotten.

Then, we will help the Indians to look for the famous "Tucandeiras" ants to start with the presentation of the ritual, which we do not recommend anyone to try, except the Indians. 
During the ritual, we will have the opportunity to film, take pictures and dance with them.

At the end of this fascinating experience, we will say goodbye to start the return to Manaus.
