A traditional communal hut built by the Yanomamo, traditionally of thatched palm leaves and wood and divided into areas for different family units.
A shabono is a hut used by the Yanomami Amerindians of extreme southern Venezuela and extreme northern Brazil. Used as temporary dwellings, they are traditionally constructed mainly of thatched palm leaves and wood. Shabonos are built in clearings in the jungle, using the wood cleared to build a palisade with a thatched roof that has a hole in the middle. In traditional Yanomami villages, multiple shabonos, each conical or rectangular in shape, surround a central open space. Each family unit has its own area within a given shabono.
