    I am Patricio and I live in the Amazon and I am part of the Shuar community. All my family is also Shuar and we live surrounded by nature and natural medicine. We feed on our farms. We sow and reap to feed. Here the banana, cassava, Chinese potato, sweet potato grows and fruits in abundance such as pineapple, papaya, and fruit cane grow, and much more

    Soy Patricio y vivo en la Amazonia y formo parte de la comunidad Shuar. Toda mi familia también es Shuar y vivimos rodeados de mucha naturaleza y medicina natural.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We can teach them how to prepare Shuar food, our language, stories, playing the flute, and our Shuar dance. We have a lot of knowledge of the natural remedies that exist in our area and we can teach them how to prepare medicine (sacred tobacco, ayahuasca, malicawaa, teas and natural juices.) We want to share ancestral knowledge to survive in the jungle without having to carry supplies. Waterfalls where rituals are given, as waterfalls and tobacco are very sacred to us.

    Podemos enseñarles cómo preparar la comida Shuar, nuestro idioma, historias, tocar la flauta, y nuestra danza shuar. Tenemos muchos conocimientos de los remedios naturales que existen en nuestra zona y podemos enseñarles cómo preparar medicina (tabaco sagrado, ayahuasca, malicawaa, tés y jugos naturales. Queremos compartir conocimientos ancestrales para sobrevivir en la selva sin necesidad de llevar provisiones. Hay muchos ríos y cascadas donde se rinden rituales, pues las cascadas y el tabaco son muy sagrados para nosotros.

    We need help with bamboo constructions and the area material (jungle). We use cement, but we want to use the materials here. We also want to build trails, lookouts, and houses on the tree.
    We also look for people who teach languages and instruments. We are looking for English teachers so our children and adults can learn the language and play new instruments such as piano, guitar, accordion, quena, etc.

    Necesitamos ayuda con construcciones de bambú y del material de la zona (selva). Utilizamos cemento, pero queremos utilizar los materiales de aquí. También queremos construir senderos, miradores, y casas sobre el árbol.
    También buscamos personas que ensenen idiomas e instrumentos. Buscamos profesores de inglés para que nuestros niños y también los adultos pueden aprender el idioma y tocar instrumentos nuevos como el piano, la guitarra, el acordeón, la quena, etc.

    We have a home in the Shawi community and we are surrounded by the jungle. There is a wonderful landscape that is seen from our house. We also have a view of the Sangay volcano. We live near a river where you can bathe in case you wish. We bathe in the river with a vessel, or we can take water to bathe in the house. We cook with stove or wood. The workawayers will receive 3 meals per day.The workers will have their room private or shared (as they wish) in a house where we all live together as a family. Our workers are part of our family.

    Tenemos una casa en la comunidad Shawi y estamos rodeado de la selva. Hay un paisaje maravilloso que se ve desde nuestra casa. También tenemos vista del volcán Sangay. Vivimos cerca de un rio donde se puede bañar en caso que deseara. Nos bañamos en el rio con una vasija, o bien podemos coger agua para bañarse en la casa. Cocinamos con estufa o con leña. Los trabajadores tendrán su cuarto privado o compartido (como deseen) en una casa donde todos vivimos conjuntamente como una familia. Nuestros trabajadores forman parte de nuestra familia.
