Yamurikuma
Yamurikuma is a festival in which the women of some Xingu tribes participate in a sort of gender role reversal, wearing feather ornaments and ankle rattles normally worn by men. There are several physical competitions, including archery, swimming, carrying logs, running, and tug of war.
The festival culminates in a wrestling contest called Huka-huka. Wrestling matches usually only last for a few seconds until one opponent is either actually thrown down or 'thrown down' by default (when the other wrestler has grabbed both of their knees in such a way that it would inevitably lead to them being knocked to the ground).

En LA ÚLTIMA MUJER EN PIE, cinco chicas son enviadas a los sitios remotos del planeta para entrenar con las nativas, aprender sus antiguos rituales deportivos y enfrentarse a rudas mujeres en una competencia nunca antes vista. Anna Campbell, una wakeboarder de 23 años; Joni Swanston, una rugbista de 23; Lesley Sackey, una boxeadora de 27; Alexandra Alam, una personal trainer de 19; y Natalie Smith, una levantadora de pesas rusas y corredora de 24 años, componen este particular equipo que, además de demostrar sus habilidades y destrezas físicas, deberá poner en juego sus capacidades mentales para resistir a disciplinas en donde no basta con ser buenas deportistas: lucha libre huka huka, bamboo rafting, carreras de búfalos de agua, pelea con palos, carreras con peso y pruebas en la altura serán parte de estos increíbles desafíos.

A LOS ORÍGENES: El ritual del Yamurikumã del pueblo Kamayurá
Tanto en la mitología como en la historia oral de ese pueblo, la aparición del pequi está vinculada a la fertilidad y al poder creativo de las mujeres. De hecho, los matrimonios mixtos entre los grupos del alto Xingú se expresan de forma ritual a través del pequi, símbolo de la fertilidad en la cultura de la región.
