Indigenous Wisdom for the Earth Series

11th February ~ The Shiwar Nation of Ecuador and their ACASJAE project

Join our Indigenous Wisdom for the Earth mailing list to tune into a conversation on protecting and recuperating genetic biodiversity in the Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest. The Shiwar Nation of Ecuador protects and conserves ancient virgin rainforest. Although their territory has remained untouched, their daily lives have slowly changed as western lifestyles and necessities grow in the community of Juyuintsa. To combat the negative social implications of the western world, the Shiwar Nation has begun ACASJAE, a pilot program to revitalise their ancestral gastronomy.  Find out more in this interview released on the 11th of February.
