In 2019 we teamed up with our friends at XAPIRI to go deep into the Peruvian Amazon and tell the story of the Matsés struggle to keep their land.
They’ve been mapping their territory with GPS in an effort to protect  them from human and natural threats creeping from all angles.
This project was very important for us because it’s an issue that  we really care about and feel really proud to be able to help this community tell their story.
