Xingu Indian Maloka
Interior of a Xingu Indian maloka. The maloka or long house is the primary living quarters for indigenous people living in villages inside of the Xingu Indigenous Park. Some malokas are very large and up to 100 people can live inside of a single dwelling. Note the large flutes leaning on poles to the left of the photograph. These giant flutes are used in the ritual of the flutes which is a common indigenous ceremony shared by various tribes living in the Xingu River Basin.
