There will be a short 1-2 hour presentation and discussion about the Village Earth project with the indigenous Shipibo-Conibo of the Peruvian Amazon next Thursday, August 10 at 7PM at the Bean Cycle in Old Town Fort Collins, CO. All are welcome to attend this presentation and it will also be a good opportunity to meet a diverse crowd from round the world attending the Village Earth training for the next 2 weeks. The Shipibo documentary Paromea Ronin Bakebo (Children of the Anaconda, 35 min.) will be shown followed by a quick slideshow with new information about the projects and issues facing indigenous peoples living in the Amazon basin. There will also be several Peruvians from the Inti Wayna Foundation present to discuss their work with the indigenous people of Peru. Traditional Shipibo crafts will also be available for sale to support a Shipibo women’s craft cooperative in the remote village of Santa Rosa de Dinamarca. Please spread the word about this free event to anyone interested and help to support the cause of indigenous rights to self-determination in the ecologically-sensitive Amazon basin.
