WELCOME TO SHIPIBO JOI

The mission of Shipibo Joi is to support the Shipibo people

to actualize their vision to conserve Shipibo ancestral land;

and to preserve their culture, language and traditional knowledge

for future generations through collaborative Shipibo directed projects.

Shipibo Joi works with Shipibo led organizations on initiatives that promote environmental stewardship, sustainability, indigenous rights, the biodiversity of the rainforest, and the preservation of Shipibo traditional knowledge, culture and language.

Shipibo Joi recognizes the unique and meaningful contribution that indigenous cultures offer the modern world regarding our interdependence on, and interconnectedness with the natural world.  As one of the largest tribes in the Peruvian Amazon, the Shipibo Nation has maintained their rich traditions and specialized knowledge of the rainforest.  Shipibo Joi also aims to educate the public on the value of preserving indigenous knowledge, the natural resources of the rainforest, and the rights of indigenous, first nations people, such as the Shipibo, to maintain their ancestral land.

Shipibo Joi is under the fiscal sponsorship of FJC, a non-profit, 501c3 philanthropic foundation.
