The History of the Shanenawa

The Shanenawa are a tribe who live in Acre in Brazil in Feijo. They speak Portuguese but the older people and the children tend to speak in their own language Shanenawa. Shane means bluebird and Nawa means foreign people.
They are an ethnic group that lived the same story as many others in Acre due to the rapid occupation of the Amazon due to the extraction and exploitation of rubber. Providing manpower and supplies to the rubber tappers in the region.

” We are the people Shanenawa which means ‘people of the bluebird’. It’s a beautiful bird that flourished and is now endangered. It is for his rarity that we are also rare; That’s why there is only Shanenawa tribe in Acre and there isn’t another one in another place in Brazil.” 

In addition, according to the stories told by the Indians, the Shanenawa “fled” from their region of origin, the river Gregory, because of conflicts with the Yawanawa people, which caused them to migrate to the region of the river Envira and to assume the identity of the Katukina in order to “camouflage” themselves and not displease with the Yawanawa once again.
But over the years, the Shanenawa have been reaffirming their original identity. Spread around the outskirts of the municipality of Feijó the Shanenawa have established nine communities. This is the only region where this ethnic group lives in Brazil. Being very close to the city, it suffers the impacts of the influence of non-Indians.
