The Indians wanted to deliver to the Minister a letter of protest against the federal Government’s measures that, in the assessment of them, take the autonomy of ethnic groups in Brazil. The holder of the culture, however, simply gave the backs, with nothing to explain, to those who were present at the ceremony as one of the most sacred rituals to the peoples of the Xingu. The abrupt exit of Ana de Hollanda the Quarup left the Indians, in a first moment, without understanding what was going on. Later, it was visible irritation of the forest people. In the letter, the ethnic groups were protesting against the Belo Monte hydroelectric plant, whose work has recently been choked by the Federal Regional Court 1st region.
