“Meu Deus sertanejo! Minha onça malhada, meu divino jaguar de sangue, fogo e pedras preciosas! Eu não creio em nada! Vinde inflamar meu sangue com aquele dom de fogo chamado fé, mesmo que vossa fé venha a me queimar, como a ventania deste meu reino sagrado e sangrado, o espinhara, o sertão incendiário e abrasador” 

- Ariano Suassuna (1927-2014)

Fulni-ô woman, Brazil
"The Fulni-ô Indians once numbered in the hundreds of thousands and lived in the lush coastal lands near Recife in northeastern Brazil, but after the European invasion, those that survived fled several hundred miles inland to a drought-prone land. For more than 5 centuries, the Fulni-ô tribe has lived in the municipality of Águas Belas. Their language is Yatê, and in this language, "Fulni-ô" means "people near the river."
"They have a sacred ritual land, not far from their village, where they spend three months each year in spiritual retreat called "ouricouri". The perpetuation of these practices and the fact that most members of the group continue to speak their native language give the Fulni-ô a strong identity despite the ongoing acculturation process."

You must understand that all the other measures—talent, education, culture, genius—are changing measures, measures of detail. The only exact measure, the only unchanging, objective real measure is the measure of inner vision. I see—I see myself—by this, you have measured. By Jeanne de Salzmann (1889–1990)
