  2. 2. What the Yanomami look like? They have brownish skin and they usually wear piercings on their face.
  3. 3. The life of the Yanomamis They live in some 200–250 villages in the Amazon rainforest on the border between Venezuela and Brazil. On one village they can be between 50-400 native people. .
  4. 4. Diet and medicine The Yanomami can be classified as foraging horticulturalists, depending heavily on rainforest resources; they use burn holticulture, grow bananas, gather fruit, and hunt animals and fish. They use plants like Curare, the chinchona tree, also the cacao for medicine. The chinchona tree is used for the anti-malaria properties, the Curare is used in medicine as a muscle relaxant and in Parkinson's disease.

Recomendations -We mustn’t cut the trees because the world needs them. -We shouldn’t mine the territory because the Yanomamis will not have place to live. -We shouldn’t build in their territory because we destroy their land. -We must stop destroying their ecosystem because is their ecosystem. -We must help them to stop doing farms in their territory because we have place to build and we build there.
