The Kalapalo subsist mainly by fishing the rivers and lakes, as their strict ethic code refrains them from hunting land mammals.. They also raise manioc and maize as well as pique fruit, peppers and beans. From May to September in the dry season, food is abundant and there is much participation with neighbouring villages in rituals and celebrations. In contrast, in the rainy season food is scarce and thus village relations are confined to each village and family.
