The TUBÚ HɄMMɄRIMASA Nation is part of the ethnic group geographically located in the department of Vaupés, on the easter border of Colombia with Brazil, between the APAPORIS River, Vaupés (Col.) and Rio Negro River (Br). The territory is located approximately 660 KM (by air) in the south east of the city of Bogotà, Capital of Colombia.


  This territory was named by the ancestors as Hummu Dejhko Suhmuru, which means “the navel of the world, the point of origin and evolution of humankind” and “the formation of all living beings”. Here, Kharemá,  “the river that distributes the purest honey of human knowledge on the Earth’s surface”, is found. It is the location where the majority of the members of the Tubú nation were originally based.  Due to different situations of internal conflict in Colombia, the nation is currently settled in Bogota, where they have also decided to share their knowledge in various  regions of the country, such as Cali as well as other cities. 




In ancient times on Earth, when the spirit of men fought for the material powers granted by the plants and their ancestral practices, Tubú, the first leader, heard the cry of a nostalgic, bloodthirsty and treacherous society, and came down through time and space, crossing through twelve dimensions, in order to bring balance to what man had dismembered.


Tubú did not initially settle on the face of the earth, preferring to go deep into its center, into the deep oceans. He chose an ocean called Humpíkhu Dia Patore (the sea of breast milk). In that sea, Tubú was born small, as a man. Once made a man, he emerged from Humpíkhu Dia Patore to earth’s surface by the Río Negro.


Once on earth, this first leader was accompanied by DIATTO YEPÃMÃSÕ (woman, daughter of the earth’s evolution, descendent of the first drop of water). With DIATTO YEPÃMÃSÕ, Tubu called forth his brothers and sisters, entrusting them with the mission to integrate mankind. Each brother and sister brought with them an energy with a specific task: DIÃKARA SɄRÃ DARY HɄMMɄRY BAYARU (The echo of his existence brings joy to life through dance), TUBU PERA HɄMMɄRY ÑẼKÕ YVRAGO (Woman leader with her the staff of truth),  DIAÑY HɄNTÃ SEKARY KUMU (Guardian of the memory of knowledge), DIÃKARABU HɄMMɄRY ÑẼKÕ (The melody of the dance, who filters the vibrations that do not correspond to harmony, a woman who receives the negative in order to give the good),  TUMIRY DɄKɄ YUKɄ BARY BOOJ (guardian of the crops, the one who knows about both spiritual and physical nourishment, MÃSÃ TUGO HɄMMɄRY ÑẼKÕ (Woman leader, the hope of a Nation),  IMIKÃ TARIRU BARY VERA KUARY BARU (The man who studies the different states of the body and the mind, from “the water that contain its own life”) POAMÕ HɄMMɄRY ÑẼKÕ (Woman who manages the words of council through the drink of knowledge) and HŨMMUGUBU BŨJPHUÁ BARY VERA KUARY KUMU (Spiritual guide and the memory of the knowledge) These are the nine forms, or archetypes that accompany TUBÚ to walk the dizziness of life and to express its existence. 

On his pilgramage Tubú experiences the great dizziness of life and materializes the Plants of Power that sustain the Anaconda Canoë (vehicle of knowledge), in order to propose a way to heal a nostalgic society. Accompanied by the power of the spoken word, Tubú proposes two languages : a language for daily life, and a sacred language of healing codes. Tubú shares this sacred language of healing codes through Dance, Song and Healing stories.

“I believe in the construction of a society associated with dance - the peak  of knowledge and the maximum vehicle for healing, transmitted in stories. Within the dances, there are collective strategies that allow for a weaving and intersecting of paths as a way to create balance for humanity. The meaning  of dancing and listening to the stories is to be able to maintain the community healthy from within our differences.”
