A rescue and reconnection experience

with our female ancestors

We women around the world have undergone intense transformations in search of a more just and peaceful world for us and for the next generations, striving to fully live according to our nature. This exploration leads us to be united on the rescue of female ancestral knowledge.

 

Huni Kuin women are guardians of an ancient legacy, their sacred knowledge has been passed down from grandmother to mother, from mother to daughter, for hundreds of generations. The strength of this indigenous ancestry and its relationship with the forest has a lot to teach us.

 

The I Women's Experience has the purpose of valuing and strengthening the Huni Kuin women, bringing together women from all over the world in a prayer for feminine energy. Through the event we inspire women to come together and empower themselves, rescuing their connection with nature and their female ancestry.

At this gathering, Huni Kuin masters and healers will share knowledge of medicinal plants from the forest and Huni Kuin spirituality, art and crafts, harvesting and preparing food, stimulating all our relationship with nature and our own bodies.

 

We are a family owned and operated community. Through a community-based tourism project, in partnership with the Huni Kuin Yube Inu Indigenous Institute with non-indigenous organizations, women from different countries have the opportunity to participate in the event, learn, live, share and contribute to the community.

Spirituality and

Medicinal plants

Huni Kuin elders have extensive knowledge of medicinal plants in the forest. Many of these plants are known only to women as they relate to female cycles, pregnancy, childbirth or the care of babies and children. Walking in the forest to harvest plants with midwives, healers and teachers is a unique experience.

 

One of the most important ancestral practices of the Huni Kuin people is the ceremonies of Nixi Pae (ayahuasca), the consecration of a sacred tea is accompanied by specific songs/prayers transmitted orally. The ceremonies were conducted for a long time only by men, but today women have been fighting for their space in conducting this and other spiritual practices, studying the traditions, prayers and songs and showing the capacity and strength that they also have in this field. At this village the women have suceed to conquire this space of them.

Art

Art is an essential part of the Huni Kuin culture, inherent in everyday tasks. There is no concrete separation between work and art: the production of utensils, clothing, even a basket to pick up mushrooms, everything is done with art. Among the most important female traditions are weaving, which also involves spinning and dyeing cotton; ceramics, focused on the production of kitchen utensils and straw plaiting, for making baskets, mats and fans. Ancestral chants also interconnect with these activities, making all practises as a ritual, forming a network of songs / prayers and manual arts transmitted through the generations.

Nature and Nutrition

To get to know the largest tropical forest on the planet, its beauty and mysteries, is a transformative experience and an opportunity to review the impacts caused by our habits and rethink our relationship with nature, and ourselves.

The work of nourishing and sustaining through food care is a feminine task in many cultures and is extremely important. Participating in the collective work in the field is one of the most true forms of connection, at harvest, agricultural knowledge, beliefs and practices are shared. Together in the kitchen we connect with the natural elements, we understand the importance of pure food and all the work involved in the nutrition of our bodies.

The group will be fed with local crops who provide an integral cure for our organism, purifying ourselves from toxic foods that we eat throughout life.
