Join Amy Eisenberg as she transports the voices of the Aymara people to you.
The Aymara people are a nation indigenous to the Andes of northern Chile. Their ancestors have lived in the Andes for centuries. Despite being ruled by other empires, the Aymara people have survived and continue to populate northern Chile.
Aymara Indian Perspectives on Development in the Andes represents a collaboration with the Aymara people. Researchers conducted interviews with Aymara people (who reside within a Chilean national park and UNESCO-designated International Biosphere Reserve) from more than 18 villages from the seacoast to the high plateau. Aymara people are proactive in preserving their sacred resources and discussing issues important to the lives and livelihoods of the Aymara people.
Join Amy Eisenberg as she amplifies the message of the Aymara people, and shares Aymara textiles, botanicals, and music. Listen as she discusses and creates a detailed understanding of issues from the Aymara point of view, exploring the complicated relationship between the Aymara and the elements of land, water, and the supernatural amid the imposition of unsustainable development within their holy land.
Presentations at 12 noon and 2 PM.
