Bird Figure

Can anyone help me identify a certain native tribe in the Amazon basin who carve small wooden birds?

Many years ago I saw a TV documentary on these people and remember the interesting detail that they believe these little bird figures, which they put on long sticks, become "alive" when they are painted.

Does anyone know what tribe this might be?

I can't be certain this is the same thing, but check out pages 38 and 39 of this site. If this is anything to go by, it looks like those carvings might be as original as the tartan of the Scottish clans.
