Ãjãí: The Headball Game of the Myky and Manoki



Ãjãí is a fun game where only the players’ heads can touch the ball. This practice, shared by a few indigenous people in the world, is present among the Myky and Manoki populations of Brazil, who speak a language of an isolated linguistic family. Myky people decided to film it for the first time.
