"[...] Through the process of ‘remembering to forget’, the funeral ceremony intends to destroy the marks of the departed,
to forget him, to erase him and, at the same time, to exhaustively create his personality, the singularity of his corporeality. […]”
Sílvia Guimarães, 2010, in O Drama Ritual da Morte para os Sanöma.
“There are two kinds of power.
One is power over, which is always destructive,
and the other is power from within,
which is a transcendent and creative power."
