Soy Barí introduces us to his large family group and the everyday life of this naturals from the Peruvian Amazon Basin. Living like “the Inka taught them” thousands of years ago, at the shores of the Piski River, at the feet of the mythical Blue Mountains. Keeping till today the art of curing with herbs, making pottery without ovens, weaving natural cotton, embroidering with unique designs, and a rich baggage of traditional chanting. A cultural heritage now endangered by the expansion of the modern world and the extractivism in their shrinking territory.
"As they use to say, health and food is free in the jungle supermarket". (Carolyn Heath, English anthropologist)
