Default Amazon piece

Hi guys!

I have this..... well how I can call this piece? I know that is a piece from Amazonia, maybe kayapò or kayabì for the weaving on the handle, but I'd like to ear from you since I'm really ignorant about amazon pieces

Length 54 cm

Thumbs up

IT APPEARS TO BE A CEREMONIAL LANCE TYPE CLUB , MADE BY THE KARAJA INDIANS FROM TOCANTINS STATE IN THE BRAZILIAN AMAZON. THIS TYPE OF LANCE WAS USED FOR SPECIFIC RITUALS AND CEREMONIES. PROBABLY FAIRLY RECENT MADE BUT A TRUE ETHINOGRAPHIC ITEM MADE BY THE TRIBE NOT BY SOMEONE ELSE. THEY USE NATURAL PIGMENTS MADE FROM THE URUCUM AND JENIPAPO SEEDS. AND THESE ARE TYPICAL PATTERNS FROM THE TRIBE.
THIS EXAMPLE IS 20.5 IN. LONG
