In the 16th century the Tupinamba live along the entire east coast of Brazil. The Europeans who meet them talk about cannibalistic feeding frenzies and ritual executions. The prisoners are treated well until the day they are killed. On the last day Tupinamba women prepare the damned. They paint the head of the prisoners and the wooden club with the same tribal pattern. They are then put to death in the village square by a singel blow on the head. Afterwards it is also the task of the women to dismember the body and cook the parts on the grill or in the pot.
