  • Service Learning - Colorado State University
    decided on four days and what food would be needed how many kilos of rice and how many chickens needed to be slaughtered I am fluent in Spanish so I started the conversation in Spanish and someone would translate what was said into Shipibo then translate it back into Spanish for me The process was very democratic There was to be a mother s committee which was given the task of deciding which families would be in charge of cooking on what days Even though ostensibly men are the leaders of the community the wisdom of the women is honored because traditionally the Shipibo are a matriarchal society Fuhrmann says There s a common joke in the village that the chief is saying out loud what his wife is telling him at home After that initial meeting Fuhrmann traveled back and forth to Pulcallpa picking up supplies that were needed for the workshop Several weeks into her stay three engineers and a surveyor arrived from the United States to teach the skills and technical information the Shipibo needed After the Shipibo were instructed in how to use the GPS devices and compasses we began the process of delineating the indigenous land We couldn t move through the jungle without first making a path We traveled with a group of 27 villagers and engineers Six people would get at the front and hack away with machetes for 20 minutes then six more people would take over The major threat in the forest is giant tropical ants which the locals call bullet ants Fuhrmann says If you get stung by one you get deathly ill for a week The ants which generally swarm at the base of trees are known to shriek before attacking A disheartening discovery in the jungle The team soon came across a scene that made them forget at least temporarily about the bullet ants We stumbled into a clearing with a ramshackle illegal logging camp Fuhrmann says The destruction was palpable The massive fallen trees were laid in random rows and the vegetation had been pulverized into mud and debris We noticed a small hut and fire burning nearby and then about 10 young men lounging around the area I was definitely surprised and waited to see the reaction of the Shipibo What surprised me the most was that they were not surprised They found it very normal as many of these illegal loggers are other indigenous peoples or rural mestizos who ve been driven to log illegally just to survive and make a buck The Shipibo calmly walked over to the loggers and greeted them Handshakes were exchanged and the loggers offered to refill our water bottles After about 10 minutes we continued on our way Some of the Shipibo told me later that they really don t mind the loggers being out there What they re worried about is getting compensation from these companies for being on their land and extracting their resources Despite the disheartening
