Together for the Huwã karu Yuxibu Centre

42585194_1570584008250548_r.jpegWe pay our respects to all traditional custodians of the land that fight for balance, harmony and preservation of the earth.

We dedicate this fundraiser to the Huwã Karu Yuxibu centre. All funds will go towards rebuilding and reforesting their land and supporting this HUNI KUIN tribe thrive once more. 

The recent fires in Acre reached the Huwã Karu Yuxibu centre, under 3 hours; 5 acres of land burned down including the centre, the irrigation system and their food and medicinal plantations, leaving them in a state of emergency.  The source of fire is still unknown.

This prayer and support will not only help them but help all of us, by protecting our forests and cultures.

The cultural centre of Huwã Karu Yuxibu is an educational and spiritual centre of Brazil’s Indigenous HUNI KUIN people, located 50km from Rio Branco, the capital city of Acre, a state within the Amazon rainforest. 
It was constructed in 2015 and provided a focus for agroecological knowledge, traditional medicine cultivation and cultural ceremonies for community, sharing healing and wisdom.

Mapu is the indigenous chief and youth leader of this HUNI KUIN tribe. With the vision that this centre would help his tribe expand and preserve  this land for the future generations,  keeping the traditional values of his people alive, teaching them to always look after the earth and give back.

With this fundraiser we have the vision to help Mapu and his tribe to rebuild and reforest their land giving them shelter, food and water so they can rebuild their autonomy. 

Your support will be greatly appreciated and we are extremely grateful for any contributions made.
 With so much love and gratitude.

The power of coming together is infinite and we acknowledge that we are all brothers and sisters here to support one another and the earth.
