Shock Video: Children Buried Alive in Amazon

In a very disturbing video below, children are buried alive in an Amazonian tradition, including a little boy who dies because no one will raise him. It is rare footage of a practice involving hundreds of children a year.

Warning, this video is very disturbing. I was unaware of this practice until seeing this video. However, one of the great values of the Internet and video sites is to educate people on such barbaric practices. Regardless of the cultural norms and sensitivities, it should be the obligation of Brazil and other nations to end this horrible practice. Perhaps if enough people watch this video, something might be done.

This site has one such description:

After being born, November 21, 2003 at 7 am, he was buried alive by his mother, Kanui. She was carrying out a ritual prescribed by the cultural norms of the Kamaiurás, which require that children of unwed mothers be buried alive. To seal the fate of Amalé his grandparents walked on top of the mound. Nobody heard even a cry from the child. Two hours after the ceremony, in a gesture of defiance against the whole tribe, his aunt Kamiru set out to disinter the baby. She recalls that his eyes and nose were bleeding profusely and that he first began to cry only eight hours later. The older Indians believe that Amalé only escaped death because that day the earth of the pit was mixed with numerous leaves and sticks, which could have created a small air bubble.

  1. The film was made by Youth With A Mission. They are a fundi organization and they want nothing less than Christian world domination. They also own the C Street house that The Family rents. They are a sick and twisted lot and they want your money and soul, and that whole world domination by their religion thing:

    In video, organization behind C Street House details plan for control of seven key sectors of society.

    Most recently covered by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow (1, 2), Washington D.C.’s “C Street House” has over the past two weeks become the center of a media firestorm. Along with GOP Senator Tom Coburn, sex-scandal embroiled GOP leaders Senator John Ensign and South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford have been tied to the row house, assessed to be worth 1.84 million dollars, which is registered as a church and provides Washington politicians with substantially lower than market rate rent. Coburn and Ensign have lived at the C Street house, while Sanford has participated in its Bible study group.

    According to the Washington Post the house is owned by Youth With a Mission D.C. Youth With a Mission is one of the most extensive Christian fundamentalist para-church organizations on Earth, and YWAM founder leader Loren Cunningham has publicly outlined a vision for Christian world-control.

  2. I didn’t even watch the video cuz I really don’t think I could watch that. It is just too cruel and inhumane treatment of children. The UN should step in. If I ran the UN, I’d make sure those children were protected.

  3. I am strongly against this barbarian practice of killing the innocent children.Who are governing the lands where this brutal and unhuman practice being done,should take concrete and immediate actions to stop these killings.We are not living in the stone age today.since we human beings belong to the Big Human Family it is our responsibility to save the lives of those innocent children.If they are sick the treatments have to be done in order to cure them.If they die naturally at the end even at their young age it is not against nature.No one should act against the law of Nature.These childern are born not to be killed as these mad people want.
