    Iawá comes from Kuruaya, an Indigenous group from the Amazon rainforest. She says her people were forced to move continuously because of the encroachment of non-Indigenous profiteers. Iawá worked for non-Indigenous people, moving from place to place to harvest rubber, nuts, and more from her native forest. The constant movement led to a scarcity of people speaking Kuruaya.
