The session consists of an introduction given spontaneously by Amiraldo Sereno Kaxinawa from the village of Secredo Artesão who occupies the function of an agro-forestry agent (agente agroflorestal). Amiraldo speaks about the workshop in which the participants elaborated on a narrative text collected by Capistrano de Abreu between 1904 and 1905 with two Cashinahua speakers from the Murú (Ibuaçu) river, an area which is situated adjacent to the areas in which the participants of the workshop are living. The narrative by Capistrano was written down in a phonetic orthography developed by himself and in the workshop was conversed into current oficial and phonological orthography as an exercise to conscientiate about orthographic practice as a process which may change with time and increasing knowledge. Based on the narrative of the old woman who transformed into a tatú (Gürteltier) three participants of the workshop give their version of the story or a different story in which the same animal plays a principal part.
