One of these, is Maira Gomez Godinho a.k.a Cunhaporanga. Right now, her TikTok account already has more than 6 million followers and 81 million likes. Most of his videos are about Amazon's exotic food, daily activities, clothes, as well as their beliefs.
The Amazonian TikToker's Story
According to BELatina's latest report, Cunhaporanga started her interest in TikTok ever since the global COVID-19 pandemic began to spread across the globe.
The health crisis took a lot of lives, including those elders who are responsible for preserving their culture. Aside from this, the tourism industry of various countries was also affected since the implemented restrictions are preventing foreigners from visiting their motherlands.
But, thanks to TikTok, Gomez and other native individuals were able to preserve their culture by sharing them with their followers. The Amazonian began being an influencer by setting up an antenna with her brother in the village region.
She spent most of her days in her village, exploring various social media platforms where she could release her education videos.

At first, she only followed the prevalent challenges in TikTok. However, one of her followers asked her if the Amazon residents were really eating larva. She responded to the question with another video where she put an alive beetle larva into her mouth.
After that content went viral, she decided to combine various trends in TikTok with her videos about the Amazon culture.
