For travelers seeking an immersive and authentic experience, we present an exclusive program in the realm of experiential tourism. This journey involves immersing oneself in the customs and culture of an indigenous ethnic group nestled within the expansive beauty of the Amazon, providing profound insights into their way of life.
Delving into the early 20th century, the Bora Indians, an indigenous community, faced a profound demographic disintegration, an unfortunate consequence of the rampant exploitation of rubber. Over a span of approximately 30 years, the once-thriving population of 15,000 dwindled drastically to a mere 427.
This historical context adds a poignant layer to the cultural exploration, shedding light on the resilience and challenges that have shaped the Boras community over time. Engaging with them today offers a unique opportunity to understand the complexities of their history, witness the revival of cultural practices, and contribute to the preservation of their heritage.
