Grandmother Maria Alice Campos Freire at Natural Way: Indigenous Voices
Grandmother Maria Alice is a member of the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers that represent a global alliance of prayer, education and healing for our Mother Earth and all her inhabitants. One of the Council's goals is to ". . protect our diverse cultures: lands, medicines, language and ceremonial ways of prayer through projects that educate and nurture our children." Addressing the Grandmothers Council for the first time, Grandmother Maria Alice Campos Freire said,  "I believe we have all been guided to be here and we will be guided to do what we came here to do. We cannot say we are of this race or that one. We have all been everything in our many lives, and now our paths cross for us to connect from many different faiths and cultures. But we are all the same flame in life."

Grandmother Maria Alice Campos Freire was born in Brazil. Growing up in Brazil she saw much war and persecution. At age 17, when pregnant with her daughter, Maria Alice was put in prison and tortured. Her daughter was born after Maria Alice became a political refuge in Europe and Africa before receiving amnesty to return to Brazil where she led a spiritual community in the deepest parts of the Amazon Rainforest reservation.

       After returning to Brazil, new doors opened for her. She was initiated into Umbanda, a Brazilian religion based on African, Brazilian, indigenous, and christian traditions. She is one of the elders and a master of the Umbanda ceremonies in the Santo Daime Church in Ceu do Mapia.   As a healer, founder of the Centro Medicina da Floresta, she actively works to preserve the rainforest. She is dedicated to children and the young people and hopes they'll continue her work and keep the traditional knowledge for all time.
