Amazon Tribes and Tadpoles

In the Amazon area, many of the smaller tribes had strong feelings about the way things looked. If one item looked like another, they felt they were related. Intestines were thought to be similar to vines, yarn, and, yes, tadpoles.

One of the tribes in this area, the Machiguenga, feared the demon Kientibakori. They felt that he was so disgusting that his intestines looked like a swirling group of tadpoles.

Because of this, some groups would forbid all women from eating tadpoles, because they worried that those women would become cursed to have the same fate.
