Along with two other tribes who share the Manú Biosphere Reserve, the indigenous Matsigenka tribe thrives in a region of astonishing biodiversity. These people are generous, strong and highly attuned to their environment. History attests to the fact they are one of the few indigenous peoples of Perú who were never conquered by the Incas. The Matsigenka’s’ desire to create a sustainable tourism model, thus building a cultural bridge between their ancient traditions and those of the modern Western world, is a project worth supporting. It was through numerous conversations with them that our team became emboldened to assist them to protect their indigenous heritage and the threatened eco-systems that they govern.
