Therefore, when you arrive in our community we will receive you in a traditional way without precedent (the ritual of the spear, “Tsaant-tobacco” is a fundamental part of the spirituality of the Shuar person), after that the vibration of your energy will be reflected on your face through the iconographies that women will make for you. In the same way, the protagonists of our community will allow you to learn about the importance of spirituality and the relationship that exists between human beings and nature.
