1. Tarapoto, Peru
The Federation of quechua indigenous peoples of the Region San Martin FEIKRESAN .is the organization that unites the QuechuaLamista population.
The city of Lamas, capital of the Province of the same name, is located on a mountain overlooking the valley of Tarapoto at 25 km. distant. Lamas is the center of the culture Quechua-Lamista which is dispersed in small villages throughout the Province. The Quechua-Lamista culture is the third largest indigenous group in Peru with a population over 50,000, according to the census of 1990. According to legends, the Quechua-Lamistas are descended from the Chancas who had been incorporated into the Inca Army and led by a general named Anco Allo, fled from the Incas during their march of conquest to the north. Finding refuge from the Incas in the jungles of present day San Martin they combined customs from their native highlands with those of their jungle neighbors. Today they maintain their language (Quechua), traditions, and lifestyle living in a separate neighboorhood of the city of Lamas and in small villages in the mountains of the Province. The Lamistas are reknowned for their capacity as artesans making items for daily use, especially ceramics and articles woven from cotton. They often use a pre-colombian native coton that grows in three colors in San Martin. The cotton they call pacucho is a rusty brown, there is a lighter shade of beige and white which they die with colors obtained from local plants.

    Indigenous Peoples
    Peru Table of Contents The word indio , as applied to native highland people of Quechua and Aymara origin, carries strong negative meanings and stereotypes among non-native Peruvians. For that reason, the ardently populist Velasco regime attempted with some success to substitute the term peasant (campesino) to accompany the many far-reaching changes his government directed at improving the socioeconomic conditions in the highlands. Nevertheless, traditional usage has prevailed in many areas in reference to those who speak native languages, dress in native styles, and engage in activities defined as native. Peruvian society ascribes to them a caste status to which no one else aspires. The ingrained attitudes and stereotypes held by the mistikuna (the Quechua term for mestizo people) toward the runakuna (native peoplethe Quechua term for themselves) in most highland towns have led to a variety of discriminatory behaviors, from mocking references to "brute" or "savage" to obliging native Americans to step aside, sit in the back of vehicles, and in general humble themselves in the presence of persons of higher status. The pattern of ethnoracist denigration has continued despite all of the protests and reports, official policies, and compelling accounts of discrimination described in Peruvian novels published since the beginning of the twentieth century.

    It was established in the city of Sucre by a reunion of the representatives of 39 communities which proposed that the organisation should be controlled and directed by the native people themselves, on the 9th of September 1984. It obtained juridical personality in 1986.
    It has improved the agricultural infrastructure of dozens of Aymara and Quechua communities building systems of micro-irrigation, greenhouses, community centres, veterinary centres and also mobilising the conservation of soil and reforesting Andean spaces.
    It has trained indigenous leaders to occupy new spaces of power on the local, regional and national level, which includes and understanding of development as a way to break with the traditional schemes of domination which act against we indigenous peoples.
    There are hundreds of national and international development organisations in Bolivia, but Kechuaymara is one of the few development institutiions founded on an indigenous philosophy and by indigenous people of the country. It has a board Directors composed of founder members and representatives of indigenous communities who govern the interests of the Foundation. Its technical and professional team is made up, in addition, of indigenous men and women.
    In 1984, Andres Jachakollo and Waskar Tupai Ari, two Bolivian Aymara, as members of a religious organisatiion discovered that spiritual activities were not sufficient to overcome the oppression suffered by the indigenous communities. They gathered educated indigenous people and representatives of indigenous communities to establish an organisation of indigenous communities that did not have religious or party-political ends. Jachakollo and Ari also proposed to set up this institution as a new way of struggling for human rights and dignity for the indigenous peoples, following the same route as the long history of indigenous resistance in the Andes.
