    Summary: 
    Edited film produced from the 1971 Yanomamo film project shot in the Amazon Basin of southern Venezuela and northern Brazil between the Negro and the Upper Orinoco rivers. In this vignette from daily life, a headman's son returns from hunting with a wild turkey and a basket of fruit for his father-in-law. The ensuing events depict how this transaction of a gift is negotiated since avoidance rules prohibit the hunter from delivering the food directly to his father-in-law. The film provides material for examining Yanomamo sex roles, division of labor, and obligations within the family.
