I am a Sapara son of the sun and I am a being of the forest. I was a member of the Amazoom TV production company, developing various Amazonian film projects in our own languages subtitled in Spanish.

“The warrior is not someone who fights, he has no right to take another’s life. The warrior, for us, is the one who sacrifices himself for the good of others, his task is to take care of the elderly, the defenceless, those who cannot do it on their own, and above all, to children, the future of humanity “
