Ave María da Silva

Artisan: Ave María da Silva

Origin: Tabatinga, Amazonas, Brazil


In Ticuna society families are divided into animal clans: the feathered clan and the crawling clan. These classifications function to keep intermarriage. No two people from the same clan can marry. Hence, a person from the crawling clan must marry a person from the feathered clan. The jaguar is symbolic of the crawling clan and its likeness is worn on the faces of clan members during rites of passage and figurines adorn the lodges of crawling clan members.
