IC Sacred Music Event: “Journey to Mutum”
"Journey to Mutum: A Cultural Encounter"
Eight Yawanawá tribe’s members are journeying from their home, in the remote Amazon forest of Acre, Brazil, to the US to sing ancestral songs, play traditional games and share their rich culture, to save their way of life, their language and their spiritual heritage from extinction.
Be part of their touching journey to save the beauty and wisdom of their ancestral teachings, passed down orally for countless generations.
Join us this October, 2016 in Miami, NY, Austin and LA. Dates and tickets available by June 1, 2016.
LET’S CELEBRATE! Together we can support the preservation of ancient plant knowledge and spiritual wisdom for the next generation and beyond.
The Traditional School of Mutum
Funds raised will go towards establishing the Traditional School of Mutum (TSM) in the Mutum Village of Acre, Brazil for Yawanawá children ages 7-14. The TSM will provide food, lodging and school supplies to Yawanawá children learning their native language, traditional legends, ancestral spiritual practices and sacred plant knowledge, as passed down from generation to generation.
A generational gap exists in the Yawanawá (as in many other tribes), where the youth no longer speak their ancestral tongue, opting to speak Portuguese instead, thus losing their connection with their cultural heritage and spiritual lineage.
- 1 language dies every 14 days
- Nearly half of the roughly 7,000 languages spoken on Earth will likely disappear by 2100
- Many endangered languages are spoken by indigenous tribes with rich oral histories and ancient knowledge, passed down from generation to generation, in their native ancestral tongue.
