Who We





Who we Are:

Goals:
We are seeking funding  to formalize our work, register our logo and estabish ourselves as leaders in collaborative intercultural education in Peru and beyond. We have a history of using all contributions to produce real results, as can be seen with our work with Amawaka people on the Inuya River where we atarted with a series of small donation, whch we used to apply to a grant from the Wenner-Gren foundation that has allowed us to film a documentary, and document the serioius health situation in the newly formed Native Community of Alto Esperanza on the upper Inuya. We appreciate your support and hopw we can count on you in the future. For example, here are three Examples of Press Coverage:

Serie Histórico-Antropológica para Respaldar la Educación Amazónica (SHARE)

 

Misión

SHARE Amazónica es un proyecto que busca incrementar el intercambio de conocimiento, ideas y temas sobre la región amazónica del Perú. Esto incluye: traducir libros clásicos, publicar libros escritos por autores indígenas en sus idiomas y editados en español, organizar programas de colaboración centrados en la educación intercultural y crear cortometrajes en, y sobre, la región en cooperación con la población local.

 

Ejemplo de nuestro trabajo:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CxJOhG-EgDk&feature=youtu.be

 

Fotos tomada durante un taller que tuvimos con el Pueblo Amawaka en el río Inuya de la Amazonía peruana. Durante este taller, los Amawaka hicieron una película sobre su propia historia, cultura y transformaciones.

 









 

Quiénes somos:

Somos un grupo de científicos sociales -en su mayoría peruanos- que realizamos proyectos de investigación y colaboración con pueblos indígenas de la región amazónica del Perú, y tenemos experiencia de trabajo a favor de la ampliación de los territorios indígenas, justicia social, protección ambiental, participación política, educación intercultural y derechos indígenas.

 

Objetivos:

Buscamos fondos para formalizar nuestro trabajo, registrar nuestro logo y establecernos como líderes en la educación intercultural colaborativa en el Perú y el extranjero. Sus contribuciones serán de gran utilidad en la obtención de importantes resultados. Por ejemplo, se puede ver nuestro trabajo con la gente de Amawaka del río Inuya, donde pudimos empezar a trabajar gracias a una serie de pequeñas donaciones, lo cual a su vez nos permitió postular a una subvención de la fundación Wenner-Gren que nos ha permitido filmar un documental y documentar la precaria situación sanitaria de la, recién formada, Comunidad Nativa Alto Esperanza en el Alto Inuya. Agradecemos su apoyo y esperamos seguir contando con el mismo en el futuro.

 
Por último, estos son otros tres ejemplos de cobertura de nuestro trabajo en prensa:

Hi everyone,

As some of may have seen on facebook, the documentary film, 'Amahuaca siempre' premiered last night in Cusco, Peru. It was screened as the closing film of the CineSuyu Film Festival during which Fernando Valdivia received an award for his work .

None of this would have been possible without your support, so THANK YOU!!!

In the next month or so, we will be working to get the english subtitles completed, line up further screenings and make it available to all of you online.

Thanks again and do not hesitate to get in touch.

All the best,
chris

We are back in Lima after a fantastic four day meeting at UCSS-NOPOKI in Atalaya where we brought together anthropologists, indigenous leaders, students from the peruvian amazon and professors of bilingual education. During the meeting in Atalaya we made a lot of progress with organizing the future of SHARE-Amzonica, including a group of indigenous students from the peruvian amazon making three more short films, which we will be sharing soon.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have supported the campaign and ask you to share it with more people.

Here is more information about the project and we will be in touch again soon with links to the films.

Mission:
SHARE Amazónica is a collective that works with universities, research institutions, government ministries and indigenous peoples to promote the interchange of knowledge, ideas and issues about the amazon region of Peru. Our work focuses on translating books, publishing books written by indigenous people, organizing collaborative programs, supporting inter-cultural bilingual education and producing short films with local people and the Amazonian School of Cinema.

Who we Are:
SHARE is comprised of anthropologists—mostly Peruvians—who carry out research and collaborative projects with indigenous peoples in the Amazon region, and have a history of working for greater indigenous territories, social justice, environmental protection, political participation, bilingual education and indigenous rights.

Method:
The methodology of SHARE is to build partnerships with institutions, organizations, individuals and government ministries to enhance the quantity and quality of Amazonian Education in terms of what is available in the region, and what is shared about the region in Peru and beyond. Rather than focusing on an official agenda, creating a separate office and using money to cover the costs of running an organization, SHARE is run by volunteers who believe in their work and are dedicated to the ethics and methods of SHARE and its collaborators. We build partnerships to publish books and produce films that promote education and intercultural exchanges that address the needs and interests of indigenous people.

Hi Everyone,

I want to give an update on the progress we have made with the fundraiser for the Historical Anthropology Series to Support Amazonian Anthropology (SHARE). The video about the health situation on the upper Inuya River has been distributed within the government indigenous organizations in the Provincial capital of Atalaya and Regional capital of Pucallpa. It has also appeared in different media outlets including print, online, radio and television. On Saturday the 25th, Lucas Perez, the president of FIARIM, the local federation and I were interviewed on Radio Sensacion based in Atalaya about the video and need for both a health post and a middle school on the Inuya River. On Friday, I met with the mayor of Atalaya, and Fernando Valdivia has been meeting with representatives of the press and government regularly. And, pon Friday, Professor Carlos Melendez Pino and I have a meeting with the Ministry of Education in Lima. As a result of the media attention a group of medical professionals will be traveling to the area tomorrow.

Along with this video, we are making progress signing agreements with different universities, research institutes and NGOs. In total we have made agreements with four different institutions that are willing to help in different ways to support the translation pf books, publication of books written by indigenous people and help fund films made by indigenous peoples.

Due to the slow internet here, I will have to wait to upload an example of a film we made with Amawaka people during a workshop in January. It is 32 minutes, and is the kind of film we are seeking funding to produce. Each workshop will last approximate.y one week, will include around 20 local participants, will be run by Fernando Valdivia who is a director of the Amazonian School of Cinema in Pucallpa and will cost $3000. The first film will be made by indigenous students studying at UCSS-NOPOKI located in Atalaya prior to a 4-day workshop in collaborative research and intercultural education, for which we have applied or funding from the Wenner-Gren Foundation. A description of this workshop can be see on this site,

http://www.salsa-tipiti.org/news/01-11-17-intercultura-education-atalaya/

The Wenner-Gren kindly supported my original research, he establishment of the Indigenous Cultural Center an is currently funding the documentary film. Un fortunately, there is not enough money available in he budget for the film workshop an translations, so we are seeking additional funding for this part of of the project. We should receive an answer from the Wenner-Gren in the next few weeks, so will le you know.

All the best,
Christopher Hewlett and Editorial Group
