Village Earth footage of our work with Shipibo communities in the Peruvian Amazon over the last six years is slotted to appear in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) in an exhibit entitled Infinity of Nations: Art and History in the Collections of the National Museum of the American Indian.

This exhibit is scheduled to be on view at the NMAI, George Gustav Heye Center, New York, New York, opening October 23, 2010 through 2020. Proceeds from the sale of the footage are going to support projects in Shipibo villages such as land demarcation and the Shipibo Radio Network. Village Earth is pleased to share our work with the Smithsonian NMAI, and we encourage you to check out the exhibit if you are in the New York City area.
