This series features the Uitoto Community in the Colombian Amazon. The photos were taken during Chief Calixto's Yadiko Ceremony, which is a dance performed by several indigenous communities to celebrate the career of an elder Chief. Each elder celebrates around 4-5 Yadikos in their lifetime, and this series is Chief Calixto's 3rd ceremony.
