Photo by @gerdludwig | Early morning along a riverbank on the Waiãpi reservation in the northeastern Brazilian Amazon, a couple performs the daily ritual of brushing their child's teeth using a toothbrush and river water. @thephotosociety #Brazil #Amazon #Waiãpi #hygiene #rainforest #indigenous
@misschristinacleary Sorry you don't understand how your comment is offensive to a dad. Yes, I find all comments like these, where painting with a broad brush, offensive. I just don't have the time to answer each one. If you were a hard working mom, and somebody said all moms are lazy fools, I'll bet you wouldn't be laughing about it.
I bet they’re happier than most people in the developed countries 😊☺️
Nice people ❤️🇵🇭
Gosh I thought it was an extraction... looks painful
this baby is like tarzan🔥
@tangocashtucker less bacteria than tap water has, I believe... its unpopulated area... far from big cities.
@blue_ivy16 Who does not know geography is you! The Amazon is in Brazil! Pega esse seu tempo livre e vai estudar!
@mundirisadatjames Great.. Good to know you sir..
@anmol.047 Not really,am from Uganda,East Africa. Nice to meet you.
@mundirisadatjames yea.. We do.. Interesting.. So you from Zanzibar?
@misschristinacleary this comment made me laugh way too hard! 😂
@anmol.047 You too refer to slippers as chappals? I can now see similarities in the languages of the world! In kiswahili, slippers are called champali. Many thanks to Natgeo for drawing the peoples of the world closer.
@tangocashtucker settle petal. Don’t get your knickers in a knot. It’s Instagram. Are you commenting on all the comments? There’s plenty with the same train of thought.
@getfatwithlinda Everybody else just uses their phone for time, so he got it real cheap.
@ellenvictoria8622 Better to not have any, and let your people die off, huh?
@mundirisadatjames Not in U.S., it's changing. The role of mother is looked down upon, sadly.
@barbaracmartel Except for the bacteria in the agua.
@azbranch He brushed the child's teeth the day before, and now it's mom's turn.
I think the interesting part of this story is the modernity of the toothbrush in this setting.
@misschristinacleary Still, a very insulting remark on your part, without totally knowing just why the man is in the background.
@tangocashtucker sure. Which is why I said generally.
y aqui en venezuela se quejan pon q notienen pasta dental
By couple you mean Mom
Great Job LOTS OF LOVE Praying for you and family 🐾🐾❤
