In Krahô´s cosmogony, Katam'jê represents the west, green vegetation, nocturnal animals, cold and damp. The Wakme'jê represents the dry season, summer, dry vegetation, diurnal animals and heat.

The way to harmonize with the great mysteries of life under heaven is to seek a balance between these opposing forces.

The Potato Festival (or "jot-yon-pin") is an important milestone in this process: it celebrates the alternation between the two seasons (dry and rainy) and between the two parties (Katam'jê and Wakme'jê) in power. , fundamental facts for the maintenance of the balance of the universe.

The Festival lasts about a week and, during this period, several rituals of union, worship and relaxation take place.
