Some 1,450 gunas will leave their traditional huts with white cane walls and roofs of pencas, located in one of the largest islands of the archipelago, to release, in 2019, some 300 homes of 41 square meters and two bedrooms, with meeting spaces of the tribe, whose total cost reaches $ 10 million, according to the government project.
