We believe in a higher, aspiring destination for humanity. We know that conflicts decline through mutual respect. We know that understanding our differences leads to joint wellbeing.

As stewards of the human race, our intrinsic responsibility rests on improving our world as much as possible. "Native" groups, also known as tribal folk, original residents, indigenous people, aboriginals, First Nations, traditional ethnicities, autochthonal societies, etc.
Dominated human existence until recently. At some point, of course, we all shared common ancestors regardless of current culture, creed, or color. However, in the past 500 years or so, thousands of unique tribal groups disappeared due to misunderstanding and impudence. Uncontrolled aspects of colonialism, ethnocentrism, racism, and politicization led to the direct and circuitous destruction of numerous native groups, each representing a valuable resource for our planet. Over 6000 of the nearly 7000 languages currently spoken face danger of extinction.
The vast majority of those constitute ethnic indigenous tongues. We believe in cherishing and carefully supporting the very few "Native" groups that remain on earth, even while standing on the brink of losing them.
Disconnecting with indigenous spirit, wisdom, and traditional knowledge represents a loss for all of us. In many cases, physical creations represent our only resources for understanding past human beliefs and aspirations. For more than a quarter-century, the professional interests of those behind ANDESAMAZON remain dedicated to documenting "traditional" South American indigenous cultures, primarily through their material culture.
Our field studies lead us to some of the most remote people on the continent. Through the years, we witnessed Native Americans existing nearly precisely as their ancestors did in prehistoric times and others jumping from 18th-century existence to 21st-century reality in the blink of an eye. The benefits of our ethnographic investigations manifest as valuable data related to linguistics, cultural history, ethno-environmental relationships, socio-cultural organization, cosmology, mythology, spirituality, and material culture. Our holistic approach to understanding the past through material arts contributes accurate information about those who created those pieces.Beautiful and exciting objects can enhance one's environment and provide invaluable knowledge regarding different ideologies, unique ways of life, and past or nearly extinct traditions. ANDESAMAZON suggests sharing with companions, friends, and especially children, whatever understanding, knowledge, and insights you obtain from our objects. In this small way, we feel inspired to preserve something of native cultures and make the world a better place. Thank you for working with us.
