The NATUTAMA week is a great success
from August 22 to 26, 2018 in Puerto Nariño, Amazonas.

Puerto Nariño was launched ... the expected and well-known "Natutama Week". Where the streets were filled with joy and color thanks to the intergenerational group of the Natutama Foundation.

Endless playful activities for children and young people, and for all audiences, were welcomed in this creative and fun event.

Theater workshops, dances and traditional drinks, like chocolate beverage, were held, creating meeting points where our eyes are filled with light when listening to our grandparents, fishermen, children and adults, as they give us their stories and experiences.

The theme on this occasion was: "Knowledge, customs and traditions about traditional fishing."

A tradition as exciting as necessary and deeply linked to the life and culture of the Tikuna people.

With the hope of reviving this knowledge, bringing it closer to the youngest, and of keeping alive the transmission of this knowledge, activities will be developed throughout this week that aim to grant the prominence that these practices and the beings that develop them deserve. In this sense the group of Natutama makes a rescue and revitalization effort.
