Santa Teresita – PARAGUAY

5 March 2019

A man dressed as a spirit is catched during the “bull-bull” game during the Arete Guasu celebration.

Guaraní Arete Guasu is the sacred celebration of the Western Guarani people and has been held since time immemorial, each year, in their ancestral territories of the great South American Chaco (central Chaco in Paraguay, southern Bolivia and northeastern Argentina). The ritual is a meeting of several worlds (of the living, the ancestors, the dead) from the Guarani cosmology, with a rituality, where masks, costumes, musicians and staging come together in a meeting between the sacred, the ancestors, and the so-called “games” and the uninterrupted music of the bands.
