Nìmwey:
Brazilian and Mayan hammocks are very similar, except that the Brazilian ones are actual fabric, while the Mayan ones are more loosely woven.

Spoiler
Brazilian.


Mayan.


Nicaraguan. (Not spreader bars, it's just the pillow.)


And the European version with spreader bars... dangerous stuff that is. ;)

Brazilian hammocks can offer very wide space and cover you up. Here is an idea of what it is, from a picture taken from a blog :

Gotta learn to make them since we can't have something too luxurious, but the designing on them is pretty simple, so I thing it won't be too hard after a while of practice.

It actually takes a lot of time. I have nothing against taking one that is already made, since there are so many things to do ourselves anyway.

Well that I understand, but I'm a DIY-if-possible type of person, and if I can learn something, I wouldn't mind doing it. Personally, a planar-style hammock wouldn't appeal to me as much as a net, though it might be more comfortable, the net is less demanding (atleast I believe) on materials. Then again, this is all just opinion, and wherever we land, we land.

EDIT: And well, I found one thing that would be most beneficial say be buy hammocks - A hammock tent, which is a standard hammock fitted with mosquito net and tarp. Might be worth it.

Hmm, why not...

Ni-awtu:
hammocks are AWESOME and once the tribe is up-and-running people can learn to knot or weave them, I think this would be appropriate considering the whole 'live off the land' idea.

really, though, as long as it doesn't rain, sleeping in hollows of trees is comfy enough... but I agree that there will be plenty of people who disagree with that. the best course of action seems to be to allow variety.

and maybe a communal hut? if you could train trees (obviously this is gonna take a long time) to grow over each other you could make a natural shelter...worth considering?
