Description:Magika, member of the Kuikuro video team triggers the talk of Kalusi, an old and powerful shaman. Kalusi gives his version of the sikness of a Kalapalo woman, Tapualu, "beaten" by Hyper-Hummingbird, a supernatural being amd one of the "owners" of the pequi (Caryocar brasiliense). He tells how he made the diagnosis and the cure, with the other kuikuro shamans, identifying the Hyper-Hummimgbird as the causer of the woman sickness. Then, he explains who are the other supernatural beings "owners/masters" of the pequi (based on the the myth about the origin of the tree and its fruits). He explains also how Samuagü, a kuikuro man, became the "owner/master" of the hugagü ritual, realized in order to pacify the supernatural being. Magika, a member of the kuikuro video team, asks some questions, as well as the researcher Carlos Fausto.
