Where: Ecuador This program features homestays with two different indigenous communities, the Otavalo people of the highlands and the Huaorani of the Ecuadorian Amazon.  The Otavalo people are known for their handicrafts, music, and the most famous market in Ecuador.  We will stay with families and participate in their daily lives as we learn about weaving, visit the markets, and explore the surrounding countryside.  During our stay with the Huaorani people of the rainforest, we will assist with day-to-day activities of life.  Our hosts will teach us about the different uses of jungle plants and how to use spears and blowguns, as the Huaorani do to get their food.  We will also learn about the struggles of the Huaorani against the oil companies who threaten their land and survival.  Together with our Huaorani guides, we will explore the tropical rainforest by foot and the rivers by dugout canoe.  The Huaorani will introduce you to a whole new world.  You will be amazed at how deep and alive the rainforest is.
