Nhanderú

NHANDERU pronounced (/nyuh.dey.roo/) means “God” in Tupi-Guarani, which is a subfamily of the Tupian languages spoken by a group of indigenous peoples living in areas of the Amazon basin. Natives from Tupi-Guarani tribes, like many other societies, often practiced a ritual called rainmaking, (or rain dance) which is intended to invoke rain through prayer.
