Since time immemorial, the Yawanawa people have lived on the banks of the Gregorio river, in the Amazon rainforest, one of the most biodiverse ecosystems on the planet. In this rich habitat, their ancestors developed a vast knowledge of the medicinal plants of the forest, as well as a deep spiritual wisdom.

Contact with the western world occurred little more than a hundred years ago, under violent circumstances, initially through enslavement to the rubber industry, and later through the domination of foreign protestant missionaries who forbid their traditional culture and spirituality.

At the end of the last century, the Yawanawa regained the rights to their lands but have recently come up against broken treaties. Nonetheless, they have been leading their own process of cultural and spiritual revival, which has crossed national boundaries and today enchants the world.
