Table of Contents and Excerpt, Conklin, Consuming Grief (6477 words)
Wari' of all ages are keenly aware that people eating would brand them as savages in the eyes of the outsiders with whom their lives are now intertwined.
Wari' see the body as something that connects the dead and the living through the ties of blood, flesh, and other elements that close family members share with each other, and through the emotional bonds of memory, especially memories of nurturance and support given and received.
Wari' believe that the spirits of their dead join the realm of animal spirits, from which they return sometimes in the bodies of white-lipped peccaries (a piglike wild animal) that offer themselves to be hunted to feed their living loved ones.
