2. Build a traditional house of Bena
A local wisdom in Bena Village, Flores, Indonesia, said that they must live in harmony with nature. They even won’t change the contour if they want to build something. The shapes of their villages resemble a ship. Symbolizes the spirit of cooperation, hard work, and mutual aid.
Someone want to build a house, it means the whole village will take part. The house frame made by a bamboo. The wood and dry weed takes the entire finish. No metal parts.
All villagers have a spirit of cooperation. They bring food and the other necessities to help the house owner. They treat others like their family. Nothing individuals like these days. There are no internet, even electricity just run a few hours during evening.
They don’t use a nail, they just use a thread made by dry weed to tied the entire frame. They don’t use nails at all. The roof also made my dry weed to help control the temperature inside. in hot days, inside will be cool. On chilly days, inside will not be.
This is the example of how the life should be. Bena village people teach me to become useful to other people. That is what we call a proper life. Help people without purpose.
