VILLAGE

Although most of them can speak Portuguese, they communicate with each other in Iny Rybé, their mother language.

Traditionally they make beautiful crafts. In the past, it used to be made for their own consumption - some of the baskets were used to transport food, ceramic dolls were used to play with the kids and jewelry was made to wear during their rituals. 

Nowadays, however, those crafts are the main source of income in the village, especially for the woman.
