Yawanawa Project

The Yawanawa are an indigenous tribe that have been living in the Amazon Rainforest since the beginning of time. It’s their home yet they don’t see themselves as the owners of the land. They are the care takers. The guardians.


Living sustainably and in harmony with nature, they've been nomads for centuries.

After the first contact with white people this changed.

They started to settle and slowly but steadily became dependent on the white people, the missionaries and the rubber trappers.

All donations go immediately into the different projects we currently run. To find out more about our project please click here.

Our mission is to protect and conserve the Amazon as well as the indigenous tribes that live there.
