The Ticuna are an indigenous people group that live in the Amazon River region of Brazil, Colombia, and Peru. Jose Carlos Santos, the Executive Director of RTM-Brazil has visited the Ticuna, and they hold a special place in his heart. In fact, RTM-Brazil already has radio programs produced in the Ticuna language, but they don't have a radio signal strong enough to reach them. That's one of the reasons why it's vital that TWR increase the transmitter power from Bonaire so that the Ticuna can be reached.
