I made my second visit to the campesino community of San Francisco on the Maranon River last month. CACE was introduced to these talented artisans by the NGO Minga Peru which has been working with this and four other villages in the area to promote better health, education, conservation and economic activities. See full album of photos at: https://www.facebook.com/amazonecology.org/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1433251213370404 These artisans have woven a wide variety of animal ornaments with chambira palm fiber which they sell to tourists that periodically visit their community with a Lindblad tour. CACE has recently begun to work with these artisans to improve the quality and diversity of their crafts.
