The Ese’Eja People of the Amazon: Connected by a Thread
NEWARK, DELAWARE, UNITED STATES • Old College Gallery • 31 August - 9 December 2016
|The exhibition presents the Ese’Eja, one of the world’s last remaining foraging societies, whose way of life is today threatened by mining and logging activities surrounding their lands and communities in southeastern Peru.|
Through daguerreotypes and photographs by UD faculty member Jon Cox and Andrew Bale (UD MFA 2005), and a selection of artifacts for healing and everyday use that attest to the nation’s traditions, knowledge and respect for their unique – and endangered – environment, The Ese’Eja People of the Amazon brings into focus a unique and fascinating community endangered by the encroachment of the modern world.
