“I am one of the responsable people for the Territorial Health Program-Health Perspective that recognizes and incorporates other knowledges and practices coming from traditional communities and we have a special place for the territorial indigenous health.
Ubiraci has a big knowlegde about his people and culture and this partnership is fundamental for the university, considering what it intends to develop.
Pataxó culture values an integral holistic knowledge, without targeting, without separation of people, things, health, life. It´s a knowledge that helps us to understand how to look after people, health, nature, life in an integral and whole way. Ubiraci´s culture can help us to have a new perspective that we are all relatives and together building a new lifestyle, a new way of good living.”
