Amazon Tribe Image.  Matis father with his son.  Note the use of a cord to tie the foreskin.  Previously, most Amazonian Indians used cords to tie themselves in this manner.  At present, the Matis are one of the last to practice this tradition.  Some anthropologists have interpreted this native tradition as a means of male support while running in the rain forest seeking game.
