We speak about our plans to visit two indigenous communities in Brasil in May 2017. Based on their project Baobáxia we want to work out if and how Freifunk mesh technologies could support them for more interconnectivity.
We plan to go to the indigenous area "Barra Velha" in Brasil to support the interconnectivity of Baobaxia communities which they are part of. Baobáxia is a community-built project to connect about 200 Brazilian quilombos to assist the interchange and preservation of traditional, community-built culture. A special challenge is found in the fact that many of these communities are located in remote areas with no access to the Internet.
The project is supported as an art project by ifa (Insitut für Auslandsbeziehungen)
Feel free to connect us. Especially Portuguese speaking people could help in planning phase.
