Noke Kuin Project
Financing of construction projects for the Kupichawa (sacred space) and fish tank.
Haux Haux, brothers!
For many years, the indgenous people Noke Kuin, from the Cruzeiro do Sul town, on Acre state, have been going through many dificulties to preserve their way of living and their ancient traditions. Due the illegal hunting, deforestation and panning in the Amazon Forest, the native animals that before used as food source to the people from the village are becoming more and more scarced. The river that supplies the region has dried and the lack of potable water became a contant issue.
Without any help from the Goverment, the Noke Kuin, that today gathers more than 3 thousand people, fights to survive, and the due the Coronavirus pandemic, it turned the whole challange even bigger. Their actual needs are many, like food, clothing, schoolar material, medicine, fuel, communication and many others.
This is why, to help strengthen the village's nutrition and to contribute on the income generation, the Noke Kuin people is planning to build a fish tank, six small houses and a big sacred house (known as Kupichawa), that it might receive visitors and share our ceremonies and medicines, whose main objective is the physical, mental and spiritual healing of the human being.
By donating to this project, you'll be helping to guarantee the survival and preserve the culture and traditions of an accestral people of our country, that embraces the life's mission to protect the Amazon Forest and everything that it has to offer to the humanity. Let's together contribute on this cause?
You all are invited to visite our village Noke Kuin, and those who contribute with higher values will have discount on the festivals, diets and sacred ceremonies, for which a calendar will be planed to be released.
