In the state of Mato Grosso, at least 91 indigenous people died as a result of the coronavirus until August 3 - nine of them in the Xingu, according to data Coiab (Coordination of Indigenous Peoples of the Brazilian Amazon).

Among the Yawalapiti, four deaths by Covid-19 were recorded, including a brother and a niece of Aritana. The chief's daughter, Kaiti Kna Yawalapiti, does not hide her concern about the advance of the pandemic in her people and the failure of the federal government to confront it.

"It is disregarding what the government is doing to us. It is very sad. My people are dying. Lack of medication, everything is missing," she said, in a video posted on her profile on a social network.

Aritana first sought medical attention in mid-July, in the village itself, after experiencing the first symptoms of the disease.

But as soon as his respiratory condition worsened, he was transferred on July 18 to an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of a hospital in Canarana (about 600 km Cuiabá), the diagnosis of Covid-19 was confirmed two days later.

the city of Mato Grosso, the chief was taken to the private hospital São Francisco, in Goiânia (700 km Canarana), he spent the last two weeks in hospital.

The chief's body should be veiled in the village itself in the coming days, so that the rituals of indigenous culture are fulfilled.

Chief since 19 years old, Aritana is the son of Paru Yawalapiti, indigenous leader who worked alongside Orlando Villas-Bôas in the defense of the creation of the Xingu Indigenous Park in the 1960s.

Five years ago, he lost his brother, Pirakuman Yawalapiti, to a stroke victim. He must be replaced by his son, Tapi Yawalapiti, who accompanied Aritana and chief Raoni Metkure on their trip to Europe last year in search of support for the protection of the Amazon, when they visited the President of France, Emmanuel Macron, and the Pope Francisco.Xingu leadership since the 1980s, Aritana is the fourth indigenous person the Yawalapiti village to die victim of Covid-19
