As part of our community empowerment initiative, Song of the Amazon is excited to be teamed up with Psicopompo Perro Negro Cultural Association. Psicopompo Perro Negro works to promote diversity and preserve the cultural voice by creating animated videos with children and young people. They use animation to promote education, healthy practices, and as vehicles for the dissemination and protection of cultural values.

The following stop-animation video was created with the Shipibo community of San Francisco Yarinacocha in Pucallpa, Peru. Song of the Amazon’s Layner Mori (Reshin Bima) took part in making this delightful short as part of Psicopompo Perro Negro’s youth animation workshop. Notice the characters in traditional Shipibo dress!

 

Psicopompo Perro Negro uses art making as a tool to empower the cultural wealth dwelling within the heart of native peoples to stand against those who believe they can destroy a hill, a lake or a forest in the name of progress. Check out more of their videos on their YouTube channel.
