For Yenny Garcia, being President of the Aymar Sawuri collective in her traditional territory of Colchane, Chile, means connecting her indigenous community’s traditional practices with modern markets and global reach. Yenny leads the 15-women cooperative as they source all local alpaca wool and natural dyes and reinforce their community’s commitment to protecting the unique Antiplano environment.
People of all social standings in North America buy into fast fashion, and redecorate with the change of seasons. This is completely normalised by TV shows that glamourize rapid makeovers, flipping real estate, and the disposability of textiles.
Florezca is pleased to host an upcoming webinar, organized by Latincouver, and part of their annual Carnaval del Sol Festival, focused specifically on Indigenous tourism in Latin America.
I will speak with five different female indigenous tourism operators from Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Guatemala and Canada about their tour offerings, the cultural components of their work, and how tourism can be a powerful driver of indigenous economic development and cultural protection.
