Amazon

A short summary

Laughing children alongside cheerful, often painted and decorated jungle dwellers are everyday occurrences in the life of the Huni Kuin tribe, which has only been discovered for several decades.

 

Only here in the deepest Amazon there is this still untouched combination of buzzing guitars, crowing cocks, melodic songs, hissing snakes, roaring monkeys, growling cats, grilling insects, crawling vermin, rushing rivers and so much more.

In the nature-loving life of the Huni Kui, who call themselves "the true people", it barely happens that they truly lack something. The pure joy in life is clearly noticeable and a deep faith in the spirit of the forest "Ni Yuxibu" creates a way of being that often could not be more different from our western embossed lifestyle.

 

100% organic food prepared directly out of the jungle by the Huni Kuin women ensures a mindful and conscious connection to the physical body. The millennia-long traditions and nature-related existence shaped an extremely deep knowledge of the human organism as well as the plant and animal kingdom.

 

The energy field around Alta Mira, one of the more than 30 villages of the Huni Kuin, has everything to offer in order to enter a world that could sometimes not be more dreamlike. Huge gigantic trees are found again and again in the region, which are sanctified and venerated by the tribe. Normally, up to 100 Huni Kuin live in a community and only recently have they decided to become more sedentary. Before that, they were accustomed, after four years for example, to leave a built-up village to start a new one. The number of the Huni Kuin tribe is estimated at over 3000 members, which according to oral transmission have been well above the 70000 before the arrival of the Europeans.

Characteristics of extreme serenity and openness to life have nevertheless remained and make these humans a pleasure to be around. Childishness and playful togetherness next to the not less valued respectful handling are some significant characteristics of the Huni Kuin people.
