Yawanawa Tribe Fundraiser by Mutum Projects Alliance

Friday, September 6, 2019

About The Event

Join us for an enriching evening of culture and presentations about the Yawanawa tribe of the Amazon jungle and projects to preserve their way of life and ancient knowledge. There will be a slideshow presentation, speakers, a Q+A panel discussion, vendors, information tables and opportunities to contribute to making a positive impact for the world. Come out to learn more and support a good cause that is vital to the preservation of all life on the planet.

All Funds Raised Go to The Yawanawa Tribe

Mutum Projects Alliance and Amazonia 911 arose out of a desire to educate and engage the global community in the issues and the importance of efforts to preserve life in the Amazon. We are working directly with representatives of the Yawanawa tribe to support and empower them in their efforts to create food sustainability for their villages and to train and educate their youth to become the next generation of Paje’s (medicine men or shamans).
