Photos Provide Rare Look at Amazon Tribe

The Ashaninka

In this Oct. 1, 2013 photo, Ashaninka Indian Antonia Amadeo and her daughter Lourdes felled trees to make room for planting yuca, near Kitamaronkani, Pichari district, Peru. Kitamaronkani, one of 350 Ashaninka communities, lies in the Apurimac river valley, the No. 1 coca-producing valley in the world. Despite the wealth-producing crop around them, residents live a largely pre-industrial existence. According to 2011 Health Ministry figures, nearly half the children suffer from malnutrition.
