The Team

We are human.

We are realists.

And dreamers.

All at the same time.

 

We are realistic human beings, who know that as humanity we can’t move forward the way we have so far.

We are dreamers and visionaries since we do believe that this change we grave for with every single cell of our body is possible.

It will happen.

In fact it is already happening.

And we are beyond excited to be alive at this moment and place in this time.

MATSINI YAWANAWA​ - FOUNDER AND CHIEF OF MUTUM

Matsini, the Casique of Aldeia Mutum, grew up in Mutum, studying with his teacher Tata from childhood til a few years ago when Tata passed away.

 

He became a Pajé around the age of 18 and has been deepening his studies ever since, constantly doing diets to strengthen his connection with the Uni and the Yawanawa prayers and traditions.

 

His sisters are the first female Pajé’s of the Yawanawa tribe, Hushahu, Putany, & Waxy, and also study in Mutum. All his children study with him deeply and carry the Yawanawa prayers with them in the most beautiful ways.

 

His son Kuru is 16 and will become a Pajé soon, and continue in his father's path in Mutum with their family.

 

Matsini works year round with groups dieting in Mutum, sharing his prayers and traditions with a few close students, and is focused on NGO work with us now via Floresta Association, our non-profit for Matsini and Mutum which aims to create sustainability in Mutum and the Amazon in general now and for many future generations.

We wanted to do something different. Something new.

We believe that it's the custodians of the Amazon who know best what they need. And we didn't want to be more white people who believe they know best what these tribes need.

THAT'S WHY WE FOUNDED THE 'FLORESTA ASSOCIATION' TOGETHER AND THEY SIT ON THE BOARD WITH US.

During university, she dedicated her studies to Herpetology, specialising in amphibians.

She has continued her studies in permaculture and her passion is to bring full self sustainability to indigenous villages within the Amazon Rainforest.

It's her dream to work on the conservation of the Amazon and help protect the indigenous people, the natural guardians of the forest.
