Fires

At nightfall, they light fires in front of each Kwarup trunk. While the residents of the host village take turns, keeping wake over the trunks and weeping for the deceased who receive homage, the visitors of each camp enters in its turn into the village, bringing logs of pindaíba to rekindle the fires, in a tense and stirring scene. The reason fires are built in front of the Kuarup post is to keep the souls who are temporarily residing within them from getting cold.
