Mishquipanga (Renealmina alpina) is the first in a series of videos produced by the Center for Amazon Community Ecology about dye plants of the Peruvian Amazon. Native artisan Ines Chichaco from the Bora village of Brillo Nuevo on the Ampiyacu River describes how she manages, harvests, and processes the fruits of the mishquipanga ginger plant by itself to dye chambira fiber purple and adds mud to the dyed fiber to turn the fiber navy blue for weaving a variety of handicrafts. English subtitles.are provided for the original narration in Spanish. CACE is documenting the use of these dye plants as part of its project to assist native artisans and communities to improve the sustainable harvest, diversity, quality and marketing of handicrafts to improve family income and forest conservation.
