Tashka Yawanawa was the leader featured in “4REAL Yawanawa”. In 2001, at 26 years old, Tashka became responsible for 600 people and 90,000 hectares of Amazon rainforest in Brazil as Chief of the Yawanawa. In just a few years, Tashka and his wife Laura, a Mixteca-Zapoteca leader from Oaxaca, Mexico, have managed to double the Yawanawa territory, reinvigorate Yawanawa culture, and establish economically and socially empowering relationships with the outside world. Tashka and Laura Yawanawa have led the remote Yawanawa people in the Brazilian Amazon back from the brink of ethnocide. Their work in sustaining the Yawanawa culture, wisdom, plant knowledge, cosmology and language is an immeasurable contribution to the legacy of humanity.
