The Wajãpis are an ethnic linguistic group from the Northern region of the Amazon, in Amapá State. They are famous abroad for transforming graphic arts into knowledge. In 2001, their oral and graphic expressions were proclaimed as Prime Works of Oral and Intangible Heritage by UNESCO. Although they are Brazilians, before this TVV version, there had been no audiovisual content published in Portuguese about the Wajãpis.
