Annual homage to the great Pajé Ikamuru Agostinho Manduca - Aldeia São Joaquim Memory Center
During the Christmas period, we will meet together with the Huni Kuin São Joaquim Community, located on the banks of the Jordan River, in the Amazon Forest, Acre, to honor the great Ikamuru Pajé Agostinho Manduca. This homage happens since 2009, the first year of his transition to the spiritual world.
The Village meets on 12/24 and 12/26 to hold traditional ceremonies of the Huni Kuin Culture, thanking the Eternal Life (Shuku Shukui) of its Great Pajé.
Aldeia São Joaquim - Memory Center is the organizer and director of this event. The Travel Groups is an accredited partner that offers the visitor all the logistics until the arrival at the airport of the city of Jordan, in addition to the effective registration. They are also Philanthropic Indigenous Assessors of the Memory Center - Aldeia São Joaquim, for matters related to the Ikamuru meeting and the visits to the Aldeia São Joaquim and Sítio Luz da Floresta.
Natural & Holistic Therapies
GARDEN OF MEDICINES
Pajé Ikamuru was a scholar and connoisseur of several medicinal plants of the Huni Kuin People, knowledge received largely in oral form through the family nucleus and close relatives.
In the first days in the village, we will visit Jardim das Medicinas - where the material body of the Pajé is located, as well as all the medicinal plants already known and studied, cultivated by the Pajé. Your children also recognize this place as the Pajé's office!
In this place also the two ceremonies of honor to the Pajé Ikamuru Agostinho Manduca are realized.
OFFICE OF STRAWS AND STRAW OBJECTS
The Huni Kuins women are very creative and use everything that the forest offers maternally in their day to day, producing utensils that facilitate and beautify the homes and the life of this people.
The straw is used to transport food and medicinal plants in the forest, they also serve to make the mats used in the terreiro by children and adults, fans that relieve the heat!
In the workshop, each one weaves his treadmill with the help of our master craftsmen, an item of great utility in the forest and that can be used throughout the meeting.
It is a daily habit that both children and adults and elders keeps alive to this day.
With genipap and annatto, they trace the lines in the body of the sacred designs - called Kenes - that represent the everyday elements of the Huni Kuin Worldview, like plants and animals.
In order to beautify and protect, these plants may also have medicinal properties, such as Urucum which is a powerful sunscreen and repellent, and Jenipapo, which can also be used in traditional diets.
BOAT RIDE TO THE VILLAGE VILLAGE
In the Jordan, the villages are integrated in a relationship that allows working together in partnership for the welfare of all Huni Kuin Communities.
In this sense, we will visit Aldeia Cachoeira for a day, on a boat trip up the beautiful Jordan River and surprise us with the beauty of our forests, our Amazon!
