The Yawanawa Emã Sheni Shushuti celebration will take place in the ancestral village of the Yawanawa People- The Sacred Village. The Sacred Village (Aldeia Sagrada) is the sacred ancestral sanctuary of the Yawanawa from the times when the entire tribe lived together united in a single village. It is there where the burial grounds of the Yawanawa elders and Pajes (Shamans) exist until today.

It was in the Sacred Village that the first contact with Western society was made. This contact marked the beginning of an era of repression by the missionaries and an era of enslavement for the exploitation of rubber. Decades later, when the Yawanawa regained the rights to their land, they stopped living in the Sacred Village and began to open new villages and re-writing their history. A great revival of Yawanawa culture, customs and spirituality took place and today the Yawanawa are living a new time.
