Description: The Amazon conservation Team believes that the most effective way to protect the environement is to strengthen the indigenous peoples’ cultures working in three fundamental bases: map, manage and protecting. This book shows how ACT develops the Collaborative Cultural Mapping by providing capacity-building and preparing the indigenous to be the main actors to defend and conserve the environement.

This manual was developed for the use of individuals and institutions that work with traditional communities that have expressed a desire to initiate a cultural mapping process in their territories. At the same time, it seeks to offer readers a basic understanding of the techniques used to create cultural maps, procedures carried out by and with the communities.
