NÏ JOTÏ AIYE: JKYO JKWAINÏ. Jotï Community book: History, Territory and Life

Project summary

This project was designed as a survival and preservation strategy by the Jotï, a Venezuelan Amazonian group (1300 people). Aware of their vulnerability as a distinctive ethnic group and confronted by safety, epidemiological and environmental threats the Jotï decided consensually in a communal meeting to write a book about them from their own perspectives, devised a content-table and requested Eglee & Stanford Zent to write the text while they take care of all images including the maps of their ancestral lands, pictures and illustrations.
