The Enawene Nawe are a relatively isolated Indigenous people in Mato Grosso state, Brazil.
Numbering around 500, the Enawene Nawe are perhap, best known for their unique fishing techniques. During the fishing season, Enawene Nawe men build dams across rivers and spend several months camped nearby, catching and smoking the fish.
Fish is an essential part of the Enawene Nawe diet and their culture, as demonstrated by rituals such as Yãkwa–an exchange of food between humans and spirits that takes four months.
The Enawene Nawe are also well known for the fact that they do not hunt or consume any red meat.
Today, Enawene Nawe are in danger of being wiped out by corporations who are encroaching on their landa and polluting their rivers.
