Description:The young Takumã, member of the Kuikuro video team, asks to one of the village shamans what's happening when he smokes his tobacco cigars, what he sees. Aitsehü, the shaman, answers telling about the itseke (suopernatural beings) he sees during the transe caused by the ingestion of the tobacco. He tells how he became a shaman, a short story of his initiation. At the end he explains the characteristics of one particular iseke, the Hyper-Hummingbird, responsible for the sikness of Tapualu, a Kalapalo woman, as well for the performance of the Hugagü ritual. In the background, it is possible to hear the sound of the atanga flutes, played in the daytime during the realization of the Hugagü feast.
