Synopsis:

 A long time ago, before there were rivers in the Amazon rainforest, a Kukama God stood poised in his canoe, holding aloft his bow and arrows.The arrows fell one by one creating vast, winding rivers, which the Kukama people have navigated until modern times. In a world that puts a price tag on nature, this animation takes viewers inside the magic and beauty of the Amazon region and reminds us of our sacred connection to water.
