Please note that Ashaninkas and other American Indians are living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Ashaninka history is interesting and important, but the Ashaninka 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 of yesterday. Suggestions for new links are always welcome.
