School for Tribal Healthcare Medics

OVERVIEW

Many different facets of the project must work simultaneously to ensure the health of the Yanomami in Venezuela. The Venezuelan Ministry of Health has already created a working blueprint, which synchronizes all of these elements with numerous treatment programs. One of our many important projects is a school for indigenous healthcare workers.

Escuela de Medicine Simplificada

The success of the overall project depends on an ongoing infrastructure. Medical doctors and specialists supply the knowledge and experience that is vital to health care. Trained community health workers will supply the day-to-day maintenance of the project in individual villages. We have found that the Indian people quickly pick up the necessary techniques and knowledge in a six-week course. They travel through the jungle much quicker than outsiders, survive better and are much less invasive to their own communities.


Future Field Work Beyond Rosebud

Through the Ceremony House and hard work of Medicine Bundle Keeper Roy Stone Sr. a revival of the Native American belief system is taking place. The Ceremony House offers a place where tribal members from all across the United States come to learn Native American Traditional healing and ceremonies from one of the very last knowledgeable elders alive today.

Top medical officials of the State of South Dakota have recognized Roy Stone Sr. incredible record of healing patients with deadly diseases such as cancer. It is the Amazonia Foundation’s honor to help Medicine Bundle Keeper Roy Stone’s gift to all humanity.

The Amazonia Foundation has realized that Roy Stone is a key aid to fighting against the terrible Methamphetamine problem on the Native American reservations in the United States. The problem is so severe sometimes seven out of ten juveniles between 12 and 20 are addicted. By financing projects that bring young Native Americans to live and learn from one of the last daily ceremonial places on the reservation, we have assisted in giving children  pride in who they are and  hope for the future.

The Amazonia Foundations charter applies to field work, but it also has an educational aspect. We are now working with the Lakota Sioux, Hopi, Navajo and Jicarilla Apache to bring new educational material and literature to the reservations that portrays an honest and positive view of their cultural relating to what is happening in the world today.


Yanomami Aid Project in Venezuela

The Amazonia Foundation is once again beginning a new project to bring medical aid to the Yanomami and other tribes of Venezuela. It has been a very difficult journey for these tribes from free roaming bands to a reservation system and the epidemics continue to plague them. We are hoping to raise the funding to begin delivering very badly needed medical assistance at the beginning of 2009.


Indian Cultural and Economic Center in Panama

It has been a dream of the Amazonia Foundation to create an Indian Cultural and economic Center in Panama. The general purpose would be to bring all the tribes of the Americas and those that wish to work with them together in one spot. As Indians take more control, they will also be in more of a position of control over the resources on their lands. That Economic and Cultural Center would be the place a new form of development can take place. Just think, if an organized effort was made to grow healthy foods and botanical curse on organic soil for a fair price that can feed the world, in a healthier way. The hope and investment possibilities are endless.
