Please donate as much as you can to support the indigenous people.

Many Shanenawa s homes have gone down the river with the floods recently, including the home of Sheterru Shananawa who is their spiritual leader.

Even worse: the Brazilian government is even more determined to get rid of indigenous people in Brazil by expanding business and developing the Amazon.

The Shanenawa are peaceful people,losing their ancestral land to the government and their homes to floods could push hundreds into severe poverty, and they just do not have the money to re-build everything.

Shaman Sheterru Shenenawa is asking for our help. Hundreds of us are reading this page, If enough of us donate just a bit, we could help Sheterru re-build a few homes, build a spiritual space to support the Shanenawa people, and buy a small destiller to extract plant essence. His work will empower his Indigenous community which is struggling right now.

Our campaigns helped the Apurina people in 2017, the Kiriri people in 2018, the Kariri Xoco in 2019, and the Yawanawa and Queros in 2021 - now let s do it again!

The Shanenawa people are asking for our help -- let s come together and give.
