Episode 135 - Chief Tuwe & Ari Brasil - from the Heart of the Amazon

Tuwe Inu Bake is a spiritual leader and Chief of the Huni Kuin people of the Brazilian Amazon. He comes from a long lineage of medicine people and has an important message to share from the “heart of the Amazon,” which he calls the “heart of the world.” He is joined by colleague and interpreter Ari Brazil, Founder of the Earth Medicine Alliance, and Miguel Gil, former CEO of Organic India – USA and current CEO of CLEAN.


Tuwe shares a message of genuine hope for the entire world, and shares some of the knowledge and wisdom from the forest, which he tells us is his home, university, supermarket, and source of life. Tuwe lives in the Huni Kuin (Kaxinawá) Indigenous Territory of Rio Humaitá, São Vicente village, in Acre, Brazil. This is a 2-day boat ride from the nearest town. He is a filmmaker and has already produced a documentary about the indigenous peoples who still live voluntarily isolated in the Western Amazon, located on the border strip between Brazil and Peru. He is President of the Association of the Indigenous Peoples of the Humaita River- ASPIRH and an indigenous agroforestry agent. He invites your support to help his people re-build their cultural center and to further share their knowledge and wisdom with the world.


Ari Brasil is the Founder of Earth Medicine Alliance which focuses on “supporting the medicines of the Earth and the people who carry them.” Her mission is to provide a platform of support to indigenous leaders, teachers, and wisdom keepers of various plant medicine lineages & traditions. The Earth Medicine Alliance platform intends to create a bridge between medicine carriers and the people interested in learning more about the medicine path and indigenous cultures. Her work also involves translating media content from indigenous leaders & organizations into English in order to shine light on the different challenges faced by these communities.


Miguel Gil is the CEO of CLEAN, a leading gut health company, and the former CEO of Organic India – USA. He is actively involved in supporting indigenous wisdom keepers, thought leaders, and organizations engaged in the healing of Earth and the regeneration renaissance.
