We Lived for a Month on the Border of Uncontacted Communites in the Peruvian Amazon. Here’s What We Saw.
Two years in the making, The Manú Project culminated this past April in a thirty-day expedition to document the stories of indigenous communities living in the rarely traveled Restricted Area of Peru’s Manú National Park. Our team of six visited the most remote areas legally accessible within Manú, a UNESCO recognized Biosphere Reserve and World Heritage site.
Our project was to observe and explore how connectivity, park regulations, and an evolving relationship with the outside world are affecting these communities. We also sought to give these people a chance to voice their own views on their lives and future. All captions cred out team: Lina Collado, Kevin Floerke and Shelby Lynn Johnson.
