Saweto is an Asheninka village on the Alto Tamaya river in Peru, near the Brazilian border. On 1st September 2014 Edwin Chota and three indigenous Asheninka leaders were murdered while defending their forests. They had been denouncing the increasingly violent illegal loggers operating on their ancestral lands for over a decade with little recognition from the government. Their widows, family and friends have taken up the fight for land titles. TMAC is working with these inspirational women to create income opportunities and enable them to continue this lucha.
