We are organizing and calling out for a week of immersion and community building in the south of bahia, October 2019.
MUTIRAO is the portuguese word for comming together.
It is dawning upon us the urge to build upon HEALTH AND HEALING as a major force in the present, so our collaboration with the pataxó of aldeia velha produced the will to revisit the terrain, and build upon it two health centers in the main common area of the village.
This year there has been great mobilization by the indigenous peoples against the municipalization of health. Municipalization would imply the removal of these people’s access to specialized health access, making it even more precarious, due to the lack of structure of many municipalities, as well as the lack of preparation of health workers to deal with the health needs and characteristics of these populations. In addition there is the distance of the health equipment and the constant exchange of teams in the change of management of the town hall. Even though indigenous peoples have had a victory over the health municipalization, the project SESAI (Special Secretariat for Indigenous Health) is far from serving all villages, especially after the “Mais Médicos” crisis. There is so much to be done yet !!
That is why we are calling collaboration to create two Pataxó health centers:
(1) EMERGENCY ROOM AND HEALTH CENTER
(2) TRADITIONAL CULTURE CENTER DEDICATED TO PATAXÓ INDIGENOUS MEDICINE
TASK FORCE FOR HEALTH!!! MUTIRÃO PATAXÓ!!! IN THE VILLAGE PARÁ PATAXÓ, CARAÍVA, SOUTH OF BAHIA !! THE SAME VILLAGE WHERE WE HELD THE II INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF TECHNOSHAMANISM IN 2016.
The Pataxó people wants health in the Pará Village ! And they are organizing a collective task force, a Mutirão.
Aldeia Pará, Caraíva, South of Bahia 12 to 19 of october, 2019
We are campaigning for the Pataxó HEALTH TASK FORCE!!! We want to help our relatives to build two health centers: a traditional indigenous healing house for prayers, songs and cataloging of knowledge, with a Pataxó herbal healing garden behind it. And also a health center for appointments the family doctor and dentists.
