Listen to new documentary about the Kuikuro people in Brazil on BBC iPlayer Now

Yesterday BBC World Service made available the radio programme tracing a day in Takumã Kuikuro’s life in the Ipatse Village, home of the Kuikuro people in the Xingu region.

The show was recorded by Mark Rickards during a research trip to Xingu in May 2017 with Paul Heritage and Jerry Brotton last year as part of People’s Palace Projects’ indigenous artistic residency programme funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, Newton Fund and Global Challenges Research Fund.

PPP is core funded as a National Portfolio Organisation of Arts Council England and by QMUL.
