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.
