the yanomami live in large, circular, communal houses called yanos or shabonos. Some can house up to 400 people. the central area is used for activities such as rituals, feasts and games. each family has its own hearth where food is prepared and cooked during the day. at night, hammocks are slung near the fire which is stoked all night to keep people warm. text : survivalinternational photos : suntilitas
