We Ashaninka of the Apiwtxa Association focus above all on our own sustainability, by growing our food, gathering, hunting and fishing. We aim to preserve plant varieties in our forest gardens and promote the sustainable use of natural resources in such a way that they do not run out.
Respecting, protecting and supporting the Ashaninka people also depend on external resources, and to generate these we have identified a series of value-added income-generating products that will help us carry forward our various projects. One of the highlights is the handicrafts that we have been producing since the 1980s for sale through our Cooperativa Ayõpare.
We are currently working to increase the range of sustainable income-generating alternatives through building value chains for fruit pulps, honey from native sting-less bees, sale of native seeds and a programme of Ashaninka living (tourism). These new products will soon be available on the market and we will announce here how to access them.
All our products are based on the values of forest protection, sustainability and valuing our culture so that we can take forward our project for living without causing problems for the environment in which we live, thereby safeguarding our identity.
