asurini_koatinemo3peq There are only 182 Asurini Indians. They live in a village on the right-hand bank of the Xingu River in the Brazilian state of Pará. They are known for their artistic ability, particularly their drawing skills. They decorate objects and their own bodies with geometric drawings. These drawings represent elements of nature and supernatural beings. The Asurini speak a language from the Tupi-Guarani linguistic branch.
