This chapter, which explores how the Yanomami1 achieve conviviality, grew out of an initial endeavour to analyse Yanomami 'tools of concord', or of agreement,2 in order to unfold an important facet of their sociality other than the fighting and bellicosity for which they have for so long been (in)famously caricatured.3 I will concentrate particularly on the means through which the construction of conviviality is realised, or attempted, by the Yanomami both intracommunally and in their intercommunity relations.
