Dear Tom:
    Now that you have given me the directions I do remember some indigenous communities along the Puyo to Macas road. Thanks for the advise.

Hello Tom,

Here is some information I pulled from the Tropical Rainforest Coalition (which may be new to some as well) web site :

Location: Puerto Santana, Pastaza Province, Ecuador. Located forty two miles southeast of Puyo.

Foundación Yawa Jee, founded in 1992, was incorporated as a Nonprofit Indigenous Foundation under the Ecuadorian legal code in 1993. It is administered by the Indigenous Community of Shuars in Comunidad Santana and was first supported by the Tropical Rainforest Coalition in December 1992. Financial support comes from private donations, preserve entry fees, ecotourism and a consortium of European organizations and clubs.

Yawa Jee is one of the many communities in that region. Hopefully this answers your question.

You can also find more information on Yawa Jee through Google:

Dear Tom:  Where the hell is Yawa Jee. I have never heard of it.  I know that there are a lot of Shuar communities up the Rio Morona which lies beyond Santiago, out in the Amazon lowlands in Morona-Santiago.

I want to thank Emily and the contributors for a great newsletter. I

particulary enjoyed Tom Croat's account of their trip to Ecuador as it

brought back many memories of my trip down to Yawa Jee, a Shuar

community (and previous rainforest conservation project of my

organization). I remember the treacherous narrow roads (blocked halfway

down to Shell, I believe due to a landslide) and a jungle camping trip

we went on. I took some slides of that experience, so I can post them

up to share with others if anyone's interested.

Thank you,

Tom Vincze
