The Good Project: Proactive protection for the Yanomami and their rainforest
Jan 20 15
Get ready for an extended talk with David Good, son of an American anthropologist and Amazon Yanomami indian. Through his unlikely background, David was compelled to create a 501C3 non-profit to protect the Yanomami from outside society that would seek to exploit them. The first half of the interview gives a detailed account of how David's parents met and how his tribal mother Yarima adjusted to a new life in New Jersey. After having experienced both societies, Yarima decided that she would return to the Amazon and live apart from her husband and 3 children. When David grew up he realized he needed to find his mother. Despite a long trek through the Amazon he finally laid eyes on his mother for the first time in 20 years and decided to act as a bridge between the tribe and modern society. At the end of the interview we learn some valuable pieces of information in regards to setting up a non-profit with the IRS and effective fundraising.
