Runi Shanenawa, the medicinal Paje, and Maxi Shanenawa, the spiritual Paje of the village of Morada Nova lead this digital healing from the forest.

This offering was from a fundraiser in 2021 to support Shanenawa villages with flood damage restoration

In addition to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has led to an unprecedented health crisis in the Amazon, many indigenous communities have been hit by heavy floods. These floods are leading to a devastating sanitary crisis resulting in the loss of housing structures, crops, and access to clean water and a rise in parasitic infections and mosquito-borne illnesses, such as Malaria and Dengue. 

In late February, the village of Morada Nova as well as 5 other Shanenawa villages were heavily affected by the floods in the Amazon. Over 265 Shanenawa families have lost 70 housing structures and 65 plantations.
