Deep In The Amazon Jungle
A Trio Unites Two Tribes
It's a Girl! Girl and Boy!
The melody lingered into my dream state as though i had been touched deep within, it thrilled me with so many pleasant emotions into the waking world. It did not disappear, but grew louder encouraging my eyes to greet the sunshine, my heart and lungs expanding. I wake in the same way the Gods welcome a new day and the anticipation of what the world will bring. I gazed out at the vivid light that extended across the river, for that sweet-tempered tune captivated the very heart of my being to seek out it's location.
Tapirape Tribe was bustling in dance, everyone was a little more hyped up than their normal musical gatherings.
Aα尺α (aara.iceghost): 'Are we celebrating something?' As i stood using one hand to lean against the camp tree.
The first to person to give me a sign of welcoming was Diana, shortly followed by Chieftess Evasanz, and then in turn all who gathered there. A smile painted on my face as the Chieftess began to recite from memory of the Ritual Celebrations that had taken place earlier in the day.
evasanz25 Verino: ' We are celebrating the arrival of triplets, that of Gulf and Huyana to which Cuba Peace Healer of Tapirape performed the ceremony ', She spoke with an excited tone, i listened intently.
The Ritual gathering had taken place riverside to Tapirape Camp, where all had assembled together to witness a birthing ceremony of three new born babies. Cuba Peace stood next to Chieftess Evasanz on the riverbank, while standing ankle deep in the River Solimoes waded Gulfstream, Diana and Huyana each cradling in their arms a newborn baby.
Cuba Peace: ' We are gathered here to celebrate the bathing of these babies. These babies were born in the jungle uniting two different Tribes, fruit of the love of two Natives Gulf an Huyana. Envy of the sun and the moon for the love they process ' She announced clearly for all to hear.
Cuba Peace: 'Now that they have arrived into this world, their parents will give them food, protection and warmth, just like any Native who arrives for the first time when he is born' She expressed
Cuba Peace: ' Today is the day when the stars are going to witness the brotherhood of three babies. We will bathe you in the River Solimoes, to make you brother of the trees, of the animals and of all living beings of Amazonian Jungle. Our new sister Tapirape Unity was born to see life grow, to give love to everything that is born new, to create offspring and one day reach the starry sky. Above all else to unite our Tribes even more' All was silently listening.
Cuba Peace: ' Two females and a male, named White Eagle who will make our Native stock prevail against white man, who wants to invade our lands' As she finished Chieftess spoke.
evasanz25 Verino: 'Zola, Zuri and White Eagle ' Raising her voice for all that had gathered around to hear.
Cuba Peace: ' Force, courage, astuteness and loyalty i give you for one day, your brothers and sisters will need you, and you will be there to help them. Woman Zola into the water, blessed are you for the grace of the Gods of Tapirape. God of sun Inti and God of Hurricane who created the four men of corn. Iquib Balam, Balamquiitze, Mahukutah and Balam Agab, you are now sister of the jungle ' Cuba then continued the same blessing for the next female child and last but not least the male newborn baby.
Cuba Peace: ' God of Rain, Thunder and Wind, you are all witnesses ' Throwing her voice out to all here the last part of the Ritual.....and that is when she shouted to all ' Now lets party '.
