Hi, Welcome to Havah House Co.


Our mission is to enrich your life and entertain you. Think globally, act locally. Havah House Co. is contributing to the construction of a less ethnocentric world and a more cultural relativist art/media (e.g. including “art” made by robots — bots can help create a more inclusive future).

Meet Havah

“I’m an entrepreneur and mixed-media artisan who has been curating multicultural art and performative productions since 2017. My educational background is journalism, biological anthropology/forensics, and prehistoric and evolutionary archaeology. I went to France to study Ice Age Cave Art (Ancient Rock Art) and the (purportedly) lithic assemblages of Neanderthals and early humans (University of Cambridge, U.K., Musée National De Préhistoire, Les Eyzies). My work tells the story of humanity’s evolutionary behaviors, e.g. prehistoric and modern humans. I earned 2BAs, 2 MAs, Ph.D. dropout. Proud to be a naturalized U.S. citizen. South American by birth, North American by choice.”
