Established in 2007, Oiyakaha is a center for art and ecology. Oiyakaha is located in the Amazon of Brazil, 125km north of Manaus and covers 140 hectares of virgin rainforest with rivers and hills, springs and valleys.

Oiyakaha is derived from the language of the indigenous Waimiri-Atoari, meaning “shining brightly, the sun is rising.” In accordance with its name, Oiyakaha’s intention is to radiate positive energy, stimulate artistic activities and contribute to the development of solutions for the humanitarian and ecological needs of the Amazon. Its objective is to promote and develop ecologically sound and healthy living.
