The Boa Foundation is a nonprofit organization that works in alliance with indigenous communities to preserve and protect sacred land, culture and ancient wisdom. We focus on indigenous-lead projects including strategic land buybacks, restoration of native ecosystems, reforestation, cultural exchange and sustainable living solutions. We believe our social, ecological and spiritual crises presents great opportunity for growth by collaborating with indigenous cultures to learn from their wisdom and experience.
We support communities that have profound understanding of the sciences of nature. Research shows that the best way to preserve land is by returning it to native indigenous communities. Communities that live and survive off their environments. Communities that work in harmony with their surrounding ecosystems to preserve and protect.
We facilitate a variety of learning and exchange opportunities for our sponsors and participants in Europe, the USA and our Elders’ native Lands. The purpose of these learning experiences is for people to be educated on indigenous cultures by indigenous leaders and elders. We believe the wisdom held by our indigenous communities is essential to building a future worthy of our children, grandchildren and beyond.

The Boa Foundation was formed in 2015 by friends and philanthropists Vivien Vilela and Rudy Randa. The Boa Foundation was born from our shared passion to preserve indigenous culture, wisdom and sacred land. Having both spent extensive time with indigenous cultures, learning and understanding ancient practices and wisdom, we made a conscious vow to support environmental and indigenous conservation.
Since our inception The Boa Foundation has evolved and expanded to include gatherings, conferences, land buybacks, sustainable living solutions, reforestation and advocacy of indigenous rights. We are passionate about bridging the gap between the indigenous cultures and the ever evolving West. We understand the importance of learning from indigenous communities and preserving their experience and knowledge to educate future generations. We started The Boa Foundation to support our shared vision. Our mission is at the forefront over everything we do. We are committed to continually working with integrity and transparency
