Welcome to
Umana Yana & African Liberation Monument

The Umana Yana is a Wai Wai benab (hut) with a 55 feet tall thatched roof hall made by Guyana’s Indigenous Peoples in 1972. It is worth a visit to see the intricate roof built with local materials and supported by wooden rafters. Umana Yana translates to ‘meeting place’, which is exactly what the hall is now used for. Outside Umana Yana lies the African Liberation Monument to commemorate African freedom fighters.
