Hello everyone! Since our last report in February, we were in the process of acquiring the largest piece of land associated with THE JAKON RATE CENTER FOR SHIPIBO-KONIBO STUDIES, and one day prior to initiating the paper work a national quarantine was declared on the 16th of March and nearly all of our work had been put on hold.
Prior to the quarantine, a group of family members had been out on the 3.4 hectare plot, clearing overgrowth, tending to the first gardens planted, and preparing new plots. Once the family finished their work and returned back to the city, further protective restrictions where enforced by the community and we had been unable to return to the land until mid June.
Thankfully, most of us have been able to avoid getting sick, and the family members who have gotten sick have quickly recovered with the help of medicinal plant remedies. Recently, restrictions with the quarantine have slowly been lifting and we hope to finalize the paperwork for the 12.6 hectare plot on the eastern side that will provide the space for the traditional school infrastructure and other spaces for regenerative agricultural initiatives to complement and support the objectives of the school.
