CHURUATA &
CASA MAYOR 
Building of 
CEREMON
IAL SPACE

What is the project about: 
The temple spaces, the Churuata and the Casa Mayor, both central to the community have been rebuilt according to the traditional Uwottuja methods. Those spaces host both the sacred events and the daily aspects of the tribe's society.

How much does it cost: 
project funded by non-profit donation.

How can it be done: 
The community used the donation to organize the harvest of wood & palms on their traditional land and transport those to the building site. The community members built both temples themselves and were supported by the donation while they accomplished that work, from the building to the sustainment of the work.

INAUGRATION

ARTEMISIA
to prevent MALARIA

What is the project about: 
Artemisia anua seeds were planted on the tribe's island in Colombia, as a first try to grow the plant. We hope that the community will learn to use the plant as a malaria preventive and curative treatment.

Artemisia anua tea is said to reduce from 80 to 90% the effect of malaria. To cultivate and harvest artemisia on the community's land seems possible, given that the plant enjoys dry poor soil and sun.


How much does it cost: 
private donation

How can it be done: 
The project would require further steps, such as a nursery for young plants and a training approach about how to harvest, use and replant yearly.
