MAHKU - Movimento dos Artistas Huni Kuin


A collective of indigenous artists from the Huni Kuin ethnicity, also known as Kaxinawá, originating from the Chico Curumim Village in the Upper Jordão River region in Acre, research and artistically recreate the visionary chants of nixi pae, the ayahuasca. The group aims to sell their artworks to acquire lands around the village to protect them from deforestation and to preserve their traditions. Created collectively, their works feature two-dimensional figures with vibrant and intense colors, and the stories are composed from experiences with the use of nixi pae.
