Attribution Concern[edit]

The following section needs attribution to maintain editorial balance. As written, it is opinion, particularly the items noted.

Religious missionary groups are intent on changing Ashaninka culture and belief systems, and some other groups who are exploiting problems within the communities became worse as a direct result of the violent upheavals of the communities over a decade ago. Some Conservation programs in the area have also been less than fair to the Ashaninka, in their move to create Conservation zones in this "important ecologically diverse area" choosing plants and animals over the Indigenous rights, and it remains to be seen if this will pose a threat to their lives and land in the future.

I don't understand why the section called "threads" bares that name. What does it have to do with thread? --Descendall 14:14, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

Misspelling - "threats" would be the correct spelling - corrected -- Meister 23:17, 8 February 2006 (UTC)


The Asháninka or Asháninca (also called "Campa" or "Kampa") are an indigenous people of eastern Perú and western Brazil. The name generally refers to a people who live in an area that spans parts of the southwest Amazon Rainforest along the Apúrimac, Ene, Perené, Tambo rivers and tributaries along the Cordillera Occidental of the Andes

PLEASE NOTE: Campa or Kampa is seen as a derogatory slur by the Ashaninka, it is a name given to them by outsiders, meaning literally to camp by the river, however the connotation is dirty, lazy, stupid, primitive, good for nothing, etc. etc. I cannot edit this on the main page as there is no option for it. Wold appreciate someone doing this.

Their ancestral lands are in the forests of Junin, Pasco, Huanuco and part of Ucayali.
