What's new on our site today!
As a complement to our Achuar language information, here is our collection of indexed links
about the Achuar tribe and their society.
The emphasis of these pages is on Achuars and other
American Indians as living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Achuar history is interesting and
important, but the Achuar Indians are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern writers as well as traditional
folklore, contemporary art as well as museum pieces, and issues and struggles of today as well as the tragedies
