mission is to provide
support to the Matsés communities so that they themselves can preserve their culture and
lands in a sustainable and independent manner.
Our movement is
unique in that it is the first non-profit association entirely comprised
of members of the Matsés nation rather than outsiders. Previously, various
non-governmental organizations acted as self-appointed representatives of the Matsés with few resulting benefits to the
indigenous communities. With knowledge and
education, the Matsés people are capable of determining their own destiny,
independent of the desires and interests of others. The Matsés Movement is an
association of the Matsés people providing support to the Matsés communities.
Movement is a non-profit association located in the Peruvian Amazon.
