Carol DeGuiseppi introduced tonight’s speaker, Jon Cox, National Geographic Explorer and no stranger to CCCC.  Jon presented his time with the Ese’Eja people of the Amazon.  Afterwards, club members had an exclusive opportunity to preview of his Ese’Eja exhibit.


The Ese’Eja People of the Amazon: Connected by a Thread

As Amazonia loses many of its indigenous cultures, their deep knowledge and wisdom of the interconnectedness of nature is also disappearing. The Ese’Eja, one of the few extant foraging societies of Peru, have been stewards of the lands in the Amazon basin for many generations. This exhibition tells their story in the hope of influencing public policy and empowering the Ese’Eja in determining their future. The Ese'Eja offer us a unique perspective on the complex political, environmental, and social issues at play in contemporary Peru, and indeed, throughout the world.
