Had a great time connecting with the Tree People getting to see and help their planting project last week in South Central with Benki and a great group of friends. Great to see the youth involved in such a great way and their city allowing them space to plant. Please check out The Tree People in the Los Angeles area. Help them help our communities.
Had a great time with Puwe this past week attending the conferência at #yorenkatasorentsi
#Repost @rudyranda with @get_repost ・・・ Just got back from the village of Ashaninka Chief Antonio where @vivilela @matzuwaoscar and I had the privilege of partaking in a meeting of 50 federal judges from Brazil , the military police , and ashaninka leaders. This was truly history. We ( @theboafoundation ) were the only ngo present. A huge honor and so inspiring to witness this historical encounter. It was more than a conference - it a course by Infan bringing federal judges and promotores de justiça from all over Brazil who deal with cases involving indigenous. They came to see the culture, learn more about it and also learn about the structure and laws of the indigenous. So they can be more fair on their decisions and take into consideration the village’s organization. They shared in many of the cultural practices - some I couldn’t believe. The president of Brazil is a jackass and their politics are a mess but there are 50 federal judges who understand the indigenous voice and the necessity of protecting the rainforest. This gives me SO MUCH HOPE ! Back to business people ! Less than an hot before we all pray for a DELUGE OF RAIN. LETS KEEP THIS PRAYER CHAIN GROWING PLEASE. 11:11 am #prayforrain @aniwa .co #prayforamazon #ibelieve #thetakeoverisreal #aniwa #aniwatribe #aniwacommunity #theboafoundation #boafoundation #saverainforest #getyoursoulright #nurturenature #meditatedontvegetate

Happy to say that we are back at it. Capturing thousands of years of ancient wisdom and teachings is a deliberate process. This is also an art form which serves a page of history that will be studied for the generations to come,if we spread the teachings to stop the poisoning of our precious earth! Make no mistake that our environments are suffering. Those environments are our basis to which we exist! Viva Los Guieiros da Floresta! #ashaninkastf
Thank you to all of you for your support for the #Ashaninkastf here is the current update. STF process that will prosecute loggers who have destroyed indigenous Ashaninkas lands will be tried and needs your support. The case will be judged by the Supreme Court and may set the deadline for environmental damages to result in conviction of the perpetrators. The cause interests victims of the disasters of Brumadinho and Mariana. The STF would judge today, March 28, the extraordinary appeal RE No. 654.833 in which timber workers are accused of exploiting wood, practicing acts of physical and sexual violence, as well as bringing diseases to the indigenous lands of ASHANINKA KAMPA OF RIO AMÔNIA, an indigenous community located in Acre, near the border of Brazil with Peru. Unfortunately it has been removed from staff, but should return in the coming weeks. We now need your support for the triumph of the indigenous and environmental cause. Send messages of support to the Ashaninkas for the Presidency of the STF in the email: 🔻audienciapresidencia @stf .jus.br🔺 You can also get the profile of the Federal Supreme Court on social networks or send email to all Ministers: 🔺http://portal.stf.jus.br/textos/verTexto.asp?servico=sobreStfEquipeGestao🔻 Make postings on social networks and use the hashtag #ashaninkastf to evolve ever more in our social pressure in defense of the Forest.

Thank you for helping the #Ashaninka families from being moved out of their homes on the lands they nurture which are also in jeopardy. The Amazon is a vital instrument in the planets health and the indigenous lives that care for it must be protected.

With your help we can chime in on the courts ruling to defend the lands on the border of Peru and Brazil. This is #Ashaninka land already and the Brazilian government is ruling to take away their rightful lands. Please help them! Your emails are powerful. Please be firm in your words and simply tell them you do you do not support their plan! Please send your EMAIL with the COURT PROCESS NUMBER: *RE # 654.833*. (MUST be included ) to SCO @STF .JUS.BR 🔻 This was MY email: “ We do not support your actions nor will we stand by quietly! We are appalled that you would even consider giving what isn’t yours to give! We support Ashaninkas indigenous rights!” 🔻
This is the real challenge. We need to focus on helping revive and replant. Please get active in nature where ever you live. This is truly a symptom of mans ruin and greed. When is enough? Thank you for this picture @franciscopiyako Viva Ashaninka! Viva lá floresta!
