AT THIS TIME ALL TRAVEL INTO YAWANAWÁ INDIGENOUS TERRITORY IS SUSPENDED DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS.
When travel opens we will make the details of this trip public. Please check back soon.
In the meantime, because the Yawanawá are not accepting visitors, their source of income has disappeared. For this reason, the SOFIE Foundation (a 501c3 organization) is accepting donations to go directly to the tribe. Click here to make your contribution. All donations are tax deductible.
If the US tax deduction is not applicable you can donate directly to the tribe here.
“One of the most important sources of income for the Yawanawa people is based on the exchange of knowledge. They have always been open to receiving visitors who can not only learn more about this culture, but can also experience life in the Forest and all this inter-relationship of care and preservation.
This sustainability format was changed because of the new Coronavirus. Because it was necessary to withdraw they no longer receive visitors and without the visitors the source of income for these families disappeared.”
