Ese’Eja elders like Mrs. Viaeja pictured here are the keepers of wisdom for their people that now number less than 1,000 members. Our cultural mapping project traveled to all three communities in Peru gathering the oral history, daily life and threats they face as traditionally based hunting, gathering and fishing people trying to navigate the 21st century. This image is part of the upcoming article, book and traveling exhibition on the Ancestral Lands of the Ese’Eja – The True People.
