The Sacha Wasi Heritage Foundation for Cultural Preservation is committed to safeguarding the ancient Kichwa culture of the Sacha Wasi tribe and other indigenous communities of the Amazon. In the face of the threats of modernization, globalization, and the encroachment of the oil industry, along with socio-economic challenges, the foundation stands as a beacon of hope.
