Four teenagers from different regions in Brazil were invited to visit the village of the Krahô in the state of Tocantins to experience cultural diversity. The youngsters arrived full of expectations and preconceived ideas. The Krahô's received them with open arms and integration was immediate. The youth participated in the ceremonies and daily routines of the tribe. They have their bodies painted with annatto dye and genipap. They are baptized and given indigenous names. By the time they depart, deep bonds have been formed.
