Creta Teaches Yagua Women: Workshop to Increase Income
Living Amazon Peru and co-sponsor Art Escape of Sonoma California support CRETA
Co-Op by facilitating the teaching of classes (to our Amazon tour guests as well as local
indigenous women’s groups) on natural fiber arts and crafts; fostering the sales of these
natural fiber arts and crafts in Iquitos, throughout the Amazon region, and abroad; as well
as providing displays and art show opportunities for their unique and colorful natural fiber
arts and crafts. Empowering indigenous women by enhancing their craft-making skills
brings in income for these women to support their families.
