THE WICHI ARE an indigenous Argentine group of people. They were originally nomadic, but as farming and agriculture proliferated throughout the country, the Wichi found the land they normally used for hunting and gathering grew too small to support them.
Now they live in small villages around the Salta province in northwest Argentina. They often don’t have enough food or clean water, and many of the children are dying of malnutrition.
Cloudhead ART brings donated digital cameras and puts them in the hands of the children of a town named Hickmann. These are some of the literally thousands of their photos. All profits from the sales of these photos go directly to build a community garden and develop clean drinking water for the children’s village.
You can purchase Wichi/H20 photos on Cloudhead’s Artslant website. If there is a photo you see in the gallery that’s not available on the site, email me at leigh [at] cloudhead [dot] org.
