    Ese Ejja Peru

Between civilization and wilderness – the indigenous peoples of Peru

Peru’s geography makes it possible that indigenous peoples still live in the country. There is one Area that stands out. It is the rainforest. Where huge trees grow, exotic birds and piranhas and crocodiles live, the Ese Ejja people have their habitat. In their language the Ese Ejja call themselves “Ece’je”, which means “people” or “true people”.
