Awajún women on a mission, technology meets tradition

(Conservation International) The Awajún women in the village of Shampuyacu are reviving their culture and restoring their forest after decades of destruction. At the heart of their efforts: a “women’s forest” featuring traditional plants — and traditional knowledge — that has grown into a thriving tourism trade and a burgeoning tea business. ​
