The second speech is called tinhü gekankgitoho, "made for greeting the messengers". The third one is called tinhü itagimpakitoho, "made for receiving the messengers". The forth one is called kukegikatoho, "made for accepting the invitation". The fifth one is the main speech, where the old founders chiefs of the local group known as Kuikuro are mentioned. All the precedings speechs are performed in the middle of the village, the plaza, in front of the men's house. The sixth speech is performed near the inviting village, the village of the messengers; it is a cerimonial dialogue between the chief who is leading the invited village and the messengers, in order to realize a ritual exchange of goods. The next day will be the final day of the feast's cycle. The anetü itaginhu is characterized by a formal style, full of methaphors, versification and parallelisms, and specialized lexicon ("words of ols people"). It is a kind of chanted speech, with a characteristic rythm and entonation. The speeches are learned and memorized by an apprentice, always of chief's lineage, during many learning session with teacher, always an older chief.
