This session is one of two in which Paulo Macambira tells three stories from the Cashinahua's oral tradition. It contains the story of the deer and the jabutí. The three stories were elicited by the text "urubú e macaco" from the story collection of Capistrano de Abreu which -according to the author - does not belong to the Cashinahua's oral tradition.
