KUTAKACHI TAYTAMAMAKUNA KAWSAY

PHOTO EXHIBIT  RIKCHAKKUNA KAWACHIY

Join us for the opening of our first photo exhibit honoring the lives of runa elders who live in Cotacachi's communities: 

KUTAKACHI TAYTAMAMAKUNA KAWSAY

Local runa cultural activist and photographer Tayta Rafael Perez Anrango photographed each subject with their consent and interviewed them in their native Kichwa language.

The elders told Anrango truly inspiring stories of resistance, survival and joy. Farmers, educators, musicians, potters, weavers and yachaks (shamans) share with us and younger generations defining moments of their lives.


Each story is written in three languages: Kichwa, English and Spanish.

The exhibit opening will be held on Saturday, May 22 between noon and 4 p.m. at the Wichana Foundation located directly next to La Cuadra Cafe near Matriz Park in Cotacachi. The event is free and open to the public.

More details to follow!
