GUARDIANS OF THE FOREST
The Amazon rainforest not only hosts an incredible diverse natural & animal ecosystem but also hundreds of local tribes, living in perfect harmony with their environment. It is not surprising that they have earned the title of “Guardian of the Forest”.
A deep socio-cultural implication with the local communities is one of the key pillars at Nomad Lodges and we are striving to involve them in our project and to improve their quality of life.
ATICOYA INDIGENOUS COMMUNITIES
Aticoya means Association of Ticunas, Cocamas and Yaguas, which are the three tribes living in this region.
The twenty-two local indigenous communities including 5700 inhabitants belonging to 800 families. 1700 of them are children under 5 years of age.
With more than a third of local inhabitants being children, our project was naturally oriented towards younger generations from its roots. In fact, our communities’ children and our own children will be the ones able to make a change and help Nomad Lodges to grow and achieve our environmental impact. With the rise of generations Y & Z and growing understanding and concerns about sustainability, Nomad Lodges aims at positioning itself as an exemplary role model in terms of sustainable tourism.
