Synopsis: At the opening for the 5th Encuentro of the Hemispheric Institute, held in Belo Horizonte, Brazil and titled Performing Heritage: Contemporary Indigenous and Community-Based Practices (http://hemisphericinstitute.org/eng/seminar/brazil2005/index.html), participants were welcomed with traditional songs performed by two indigenous Brazilian groups: the Maxakalí (or Maxacalí) from Minas Gerais, and the Kayapó (or Kaiapó / Mebengokré) from Mato Grosso. In turn, indigenous participants from all over the Americas thanked them for welcoming them to their land, sharing a few words and/or songs to kick off the ten-day event.
