For 10 years, MAHKU (Movimento dos Artistas Huni kuin) has been protecting the nixi pae by developing a contemporary artistic practice that is both a methodology for safeguarding and renewing Huni Kuin ancestral knowledge and a strategy for territorial recovery. For the Huni Kuin, an indigenous people living in the Western Amazon, across the Brazilian state of Acre and Peru, taking care of ayahuasca, the nixi pae, is taking care of the planet. MAHKU claims visual art as a weapon in the struggle for political, ecological and cultural autonomy of the Huni Kuin people. Event Details
