Amazon Native Community Amarakayre 4 days: Until the early fifties, the Amarakaeri was one of the most isolated groups in the jungle. Outsiders commonly referred to as “Mashcos”. He was a warrior people who fought to strangers with bow and arrow. They lived on a hill in the Andean foothills, called sapite, among the thousand and 1200 meters above sea level. The ground was covered by a dense tangled vegetation,
surrounded by streams and rushing rivers. Often hiding any warrior group that could threaten its survival. It is said that another group, called the huachipayre, defeated the enemies of the aratbut. With the disappearance of their dreaded enemies, the aratbut began to move to the headwaters of the Alto Madre de Dios River in search of better lands. When they got off sapite, were divided into several subgroups. It seems that when they changed location, also renamed. A Dominican priest made peaceful contact with one of these subgroups in 1951.

Once, when a young man of apparent good health died without cause, an old man said he had a vision of four women who buried the bones of a wild turkey to cause the death of the young. The townsmen grabbed women were beaten with sticks and machetes and thrown unconscious into the river. A revived and escaped and three were drowned.
