SAVING OURSELVES FROM INDIGENOUS EXTINCTION
TO BE OF SERVICE TO THE PRESERVATION OF INDIGENOUS WISDOM…
We believe this will not only help us heal ourselves, but will help heal the world.
- At SOFIE we envision a world where indigenous life is honored and where the diversity of nature thrives
- We recognize indigenous life — both human and non-human — to be a source of ancient wisdom
- We recognize this wisdom is threatened with extinction and strive to help those who understand it best protect it, so that we can all learn from it, before it is too late
- With the help of extremely generous individuals such as yourself, we act as an educational and fundraising entity to support various projects that are aligned with this vision
THE SPIRIT OF TATÁ
A DOCUMENTARY FILM PROJECT
Reaching near extinction in the mid-1980s, it was Tatá who helped lead a revival of the Yawanawá’s cultural and spiritual practices to recover and revive their ancient languages and traditions before they were lost forever.
Come with us on a journey to witness Tatá’s final days,
one of the last Amazonian shamans on the planet.
In an effort to bring awareness to indigenous life on the planet we are offering this space for communities everywhere to share and learn. Wherever you are on your journey you can find information here, choose to be of service by volunteering your time, or give a donation to help build this future resource for all. We recognize indigenous life, both human and non-human, to be a source of wisdom from which there is much to learn.
One of the most important aspects of The SOFIE Foundation is documentary filmmaking. By sharing stories about indigenous wisdom around the world we aim to wake up modern audiences to the inherent and vital need to preserve, protect, and support the continuation of indigenous peoples — the guardians of indigenous animal and plant knowledge — for the sake of all life on earth.
