Asurini

Photos of the Asurini do Xingu indigenous people who inhabit the Koatinemo Indigenous reserve on the Xingu River in the northern Brazilian state of Pará.


Having visited the Asurini village of Koatinemo in 2016 we work directly with a number of Asurini artists who we were fortunate to spend time with and learn about their culture.
