Wauja Summer Experience: A Collaboration with Indigenous Scholars

The Americas Research Network (ARENET) has announced a 6-credit summer school program for U.S. undergraduate students to explore central Brazil for three weeks. Students will have the opportunity to participate in field ethnography as part of the ARENET Wauja Language Revitalization and Documentation Project. This program is run in collaboration with Purdue University.

Students will fly to the international arrival point of Sa~o Paulo, then on to the city of Cuiaba´, where they will visit the nearby Chapada dos Guimaraes National Park, a spectacular plateau with dramatic red sandstone cliffs very different from the lowland Wauja terrain that they'll see later. They will then take an air taxi into the Xingu Indigenous Territory, arriving in the Indigenous Wauja village of Piyulaga.
