Contributor (compiler):Carlos Fausto

Description:Amunegi asks to Asahü, his maternal grand-father to explains what he is doing. Asahü is making "ha", a bag used for carrying pequi (Caryocar brasiliense) fruits. Then, Amunegi continues asking about the bag, its meanings and its origin. Asahü tells the story of the mythical Armadillo, who invented the bag and is one of the personnages of the myth on the origin of the pequi tree. During the telling of the story, Asahü sings the Aramadillo songs and explains that they are part of the hugagü ritual. Hugagü is the main feast of the pequi ritual complex. So, he makes and explains the links between ritual, myth and songs. Moreover, Asahü tells about the reasons of the ongoing hugagü: the sikness of Tapualu, the cure by the shamans and how Tapualu's husband became the "hugagü owner". Amunegi tries to learn how to make "ha".
