We invited visitors to the exhibit to leave feedback.  Here is what they said:




Great exhibit! Thank you for presenting this perspective, I look forward to many more conversations between community members and decision makers, I hope it all results in more designs and plans for the city. This exhibit makes me feel very hopeful for all the possibilities that may occur.

With this exhibition I realize the effort of our communities, of the population to get ahead, you can see that the national and regional authorities do not care to support and people live in poverty, but they are happy. You can see the biodiversity with its ecosystem, everything is wonderful and it would be economically and environmentally better for tourists and research. It would be interesting to work with the communities that live near the oil companies, to see how their health, housing, etc. is

A very important presentation, congratulations to the research team and to the 3 communities that participated in this work. I believe that the documented results are valuable for decision makers (politicians) who should take into account these data to improve the quality of life of the inhabitants of Claverito and Bajo Belén. And also try to make an integral work for the relocation of these populations to non-floodable places as is the case of Nuevo Belen, also these people of NB need to live in better conditions, have basic services to feel comfortable and not to return to the banks of the rivers, where they find the most important thing for them: The connection with nature and all that being close to the river and plants implies. congratulations Coco and Leann!

Excellent presentation, very valuable and important. It made me think about the way people live and their interrelation with other forms of life. Congratulations and proud of those people who made this study a reality.

The communities in Iquitos are the heart of Iquitos!

The exhibition is very nice and valuable, it allows us to know different realities of nearby communities that many people did not know existed, especially those who despite the current technology continue to apply ancestral customs, many of them value the biodiversity that surrounds them and outdoor fun. On the other hand, it also shows us another side of reality and that is to see the amount of general solid waste (garbage) which is not handled properly and ends up polluting, it is noted that there is hard work to implement around environmental education and prevent contamination of the environment where we live.

It made us think about the importance of natural resources in relation to the people who live in the communities, we felt a connection with nature, landscapes, trees, birds through photography. We hope that people become aware of the importance of caring for the environment and that they know the importance of it.

It is very interesting to know the past of the beautiful Peru. Excellent Museum.

It made me think that in our region there is an immense cultural lineage. I was very excited to learn about the part of our history. That there is much more to this beautiful region. I suggest that this history be transmitted to our children and young people in school, so that they are better informed and love their beautiful region. Spread it to other places in Peru and the world.

Our reality must change, taking care of our biodiversity, not extracting wood, cultivating the land. Our environment is being polluted by garbage, our health is in danger, alert authorities.

It made me think about the complicated connection between the jungle, culture and community. ¡I learned a lot, thank you!

Congratulations for the work.

Don’t forget our past

I have always thought that remembering history, knowing our past and culture are fundamental pieces in the formation of a new and better society. I have found feelings of identity, appreciation and much to express. We should value art more! Good job!

It´s interesting and opportune to carry out this type of activities so that people can learn about our past.

Anthropology taught us Iquitos in a different way. Science and humanities for the city.

I liked the exhibition very much. As a Spanish visitor, it has shown me a reality that I was unaware of and that the sociological study and statistics have taught me that parents, children and families are looking for the same thing. It is worth mentioning the quality of the photos, the great security of each person photographed

Great job!!!

Interesting, they just need to improve or give more maintenance to the museum, I'll be back!

Very interesting, poor natives, they were objects of so much violence, all for ambition and money.

This exposition was beneficial in seeing contemporary life in the amazon my very removed perspective was wan are just how much modern daily life is affected by the seasonality of the river.

Very interesting to know the history and the abuses committed to the people, to the human being. As long as ambition exists, exploitation will continue; sad. That is why people should be educated not to be abused.

Very good exhibition, which shows tourists what happened in the jungle culture. Congratulations.

Good exhibition

The exploitation was so important that even when the government intervened, it ended up harming and generating more conflict, and it ended without looking after the interests of the indigenous people, who to date do not have any vindication. I feel that the exhibition shows a reality that Peruvians sometimes do not know or leave aside and that thanks to this context allows us to understand the behavior and cosmovision of the indigenous people. People identify themselves, because the photos show the horror, the feeling of resignation. Now what we should do is to make some kind of commemoration to always remember in order to prevent this event from happening again.

Reencountering our values, which we need so much (Rumococha)

We need to look to the future, that our communities are more united and thus make the change to develop a great organization in our neighborhood council (Claverito).

I hope that this exhibition will be successful, in order to have a little more consideration of our needs in all aspects (Varillalito).

Respect for our cultural roots

Revalue our culture

That people should change

Promote our cultural roots, show our culture, rooted in our ancestors.

Best wishes as a representation of what is ours.

I hope it will not be the first nor the last, that many visits to Belén will come.

Promote your visit for children and youth. It is very interesting and beautiful (Professors Alfredo and Esther).

The community of the lower zone of Belen is grateful for all the affection that they gave us.

I hope to have good results for the benefit of my community.

To value our identity and culture

My clean land

To make better decisions in relation to these communities.

Respect nature and our ecosystems.

Support Art more.

More Rainforest, Less Garbage!
