Hakhu Amazon Design: Empowering Women and Indigenous Resistance

Hakhu is an indigenous-led organization in the Ecuadorian Amazon that is empowering indigenous women, promoting sustainable development, and protecting Mother Earth and the extraction of natural resources.

Via the Hakhu website:

Our mission is to empower indigenous communities in order to protect our rainforests and ancestral knowledge for future generations. As our first project, we have chosen to create Hakhu Amazon Design. This initiative aims to provide a unique opportunity to indigenous women in the Ecuadorian Amazon and beyond to utilise our cultural and artistic heritage in such a way as to protect our territories while providing them with a sustainable source of income through selling unique bespoke handcrafts via an online platform.
