Pará, Brazil. 2015
In a vast area of the Amazon jungle, in a place full of chestnut trees, we lived in the village of Kawatum, in Mekregnotire territory, the southern part of the State of Pará for 22 days. The idea behind the visit was to generate new experiences and exchange of bio-construction technology and culture as a whole, but the most important aspect was how live at ease in the jungle with everything at hands reach and partake in a healthy dialogue with the ecosystem. These are the teachings that the Chief Kokodjerite, his father-in-law Cauan, essential tribe leader and the inhabitants of the village gave us.
Our biggest challenge was that tomorrow does not exist so cannot be programmed, that was a relaxing aspect and relief from our crazy habit of controlling time.
On the build, we made walls of wattle and daub with windows, our version and then Cauan´s version.
