Thank you to Nerio Reategui, our Shipibo project partner and friend, for sending these photos. He works as a translator between Shipibo, Ashaninka, and Spanish languages for an indigenous organization in the Ucayali region and spends a lot of time traveling to different communities some so remote it takes 3 weeks to reach by boat. Nerio has been involved in past Village Earth workshops and project activities. Above: They are planting beds of Camu camu, a medicinal plant whose fruit they sell in regional, national and international markets. These photos were taken in Tahuania, a district in the Ucayali department of Peru.
