Description

"The sacred medicines, they have a tradition, they have a root. They have a design and a story.  Cultural appropriation is just taking things that have an entire tradition behind them, and then changing them to suit a different narrative. That's why at Aniwa, we're passionate about that about teaching people to learn from the elders directly, and simply to take that message and embody transmission."

- Vivien Vilela on The Modern Spirituality Show 

Vivien Vilela is the Co-Founder & CEO of Aniwa, an organization amplifying the message of indigenous leaders through a digital platform and in person gatherings. In addition she co-founded The Boa Foundation, a non profit organization working in alliance with indigenous leaders to preserve land and culture.  

Born and raised in Brazil, Vivien has dedicated over a decade to her spiritual studies and the preservation of indigenous culture and wisdom. Vivien has been initiated in the ancient traditions by some of the most respected indigenous elders from South, Central, and North America. She is currently a student of world-renowned Ashaninka leader Benki Piyãko.
