Center for Amazon Community Ecology: Part 2: Handicrafts. This video focuses on CACE's work with native artisans in the Peruvian Amazon. It documents their use of chambira palm leaves to make woven crafts and natural plant dyes made from fruit, bark, roots and leaves. The piece also shows how the Center helps market bags, baskets, and jewelry in the U.S. and returns some proceeds to support schools and other local needs in its partner communities including Jenaro Herrera on the Ucayali River and Bora Indians along the Ampiyacu River.
