The objective of the project is the construction of a Shuhu in the Shukuvena Village in the Yawanawá Indigenous Land of Rio Gregório, Acre, for Education and Sustainability, being a space for valuing and encouraging the practices and knowledge of the Yawanawá people.
In this space the Shukuvena will hold classes and workshops with women and men from other communities, as well as other peoples. In addition to the common spaces, there will be spaces for accommodation, enabling the reception of indigenous and non-indigenous people and groups from other regions for exchange and studies.
The construction of the Shuhu in the Shukuvena village will be based on a dialogue between knowledge of traditional Yawanawá architecture and bioconstruction.
The house will be built using local and nearby materials. The project relies on solar energy to power the electrical system andwater pump from the artesian well.
