DIEZ MUJERES KICHWAS
Compartiendo sus saberes y conocimientos
The documentary film Sacha Mamakuna – Mamás de la Selva tells how mothers from the Association of Women Midwives Kichwas from Alto Napo, AMUPAKIN learn from women’s knowledge and gifts (pajuyukhuna). The film tells stories about medicine, plants, midwifery and shamanism, and it shows how these women put into practice this knowledge, to reaffirm their status as Kichwa woman leaders. In a close, intimate and collaborative manner, their voices and practices are living accounts of collective resistance that reaffirm their identity and culture, a culture that faces complex changes due to modernity, state power, authorities, and the public health system. The documentary is part of a larger effort to instill the values of Kichwa practices and culture among the younger generations.
