Come enjoy a once in a lifetime ceremonial dining experience with Matsini Yawanawá, the Spiritual Leader of the Yawanawá indigenous tribe from the Brazilian Amazon. Last December the Yawanawá lost a valuable member of their family - Tata. Tata was one of the oldest shamans in the Amazon, responsible for reviving their spiritual traditions when the missionary occupation finally came to an end.
Enjoy an evening of high vibrational food + wine, beautiful music and heartfelt stories as we celebrate community to raise money to complete "The Spirit of Tata", a full length documentary following 103-year-old Tata Yawanawá in his final days - follow the historic and challenging journey of Matsini and the tribe as they lose their beloved elder and greatest living library of spiritual knowledge and power.
This story is emblematic of a reality we face around the world - the story of cultures losing their elders while struggling to recover and revive their ancient languages and traditions before they are lost forever. The film aims to wake up modern audiences to the inherent and vital need to preserve, protect, and support the continuation of indigenous peoples and knowledge for the sake of all life on earth.
The evening is hosted by the Sofie Foundation, a registered 501(c)(3) organization. All are welcome to participate in this very special event to honor and support Matsini, the Yawanawá people, and the spirit of Tata.
