TO THE WARAO OF VENEZUELA, THE FOREST IS A TRIBE OF TREES, BUSHES, AND PALMS, AND THE RED "CACHICAMO" TREE IS "DAUARANI", THE "MOTHER OF THE FOREST", THE GODDESS OF LIGHT. IN EXCHANGE FOR HER COVETED MEDICINAL INGREDIENTS, SHE CAREFULLY INVENTORIES AND WATCHES OVER THE FOREST. TO MAKE A CANOE, ONE MUST SEEK HER PERMISSION. THE SPIRIT OF THE TREES LIVES ON IN THE CANOES WHICH ARE CARVED FROM THE EMBODIMENT OF "DAUARANI" WHOSE WOMB IS BOTH THE BIRTH CANAL AND COFFIN.

ANYONE WHO WANTS TO FELL A TREE NEEDS A SHAMAN TO INTERCEDE ON HIS BEHALF AND ASK "DAUARANI" TO TO ACCEPT HIM AS A HUSBAND OF OF ONE OF HER DAUGHTERS. HENCE, SHAMANS RITUALLY APPROACH THE TREE WOMAN WHO IS GENERALLY DEPICTED AS A MAIDEN WEARING A COMB AND A NECKLACE OF BLUE, WHITE, AND RED BEADS, AND SING TO HER. THE CANOE CARVED FROM HER WOOD IS VULVA SHAPED. THE WARAO, WHO CALL THEMSELVES CANOE PEOPLE, COMPARE ITS CARGO TO THE FRUITS CREATED BY THE "MOTHER OF THE FOREST". UPON DEATH, A WARAO IS BURIED IN A DUGOUT CANOE CALLED THE "VAGINA OF DAUARANI. "
