Tuwe Huni Kui Inu Bake

My name in Portuguese is Nilson, but my original name is Tuwe. I am from the Huni Kuin people. I live in the Kaxinawa Indigenous Land of the Humaita River, in the village of São Vicente, which is located in the municipality of Tarauaca, in the state of Acre, Brazil. I am a filmmaker, forest agent, and Indigenous youth leader from the Amazon. Now, I’m studying English at NYU, and working on my documentary about the people in Voluntary Isolation living on the border between Brazil and Peru. My documentary’s name is Nuku Inu Shenipabura, which means “Us and Them.”
