The region is also home to archaeological sites such as this one. Large boulders along the river still bear prehistoric stone engravings dating back tens of thousands of years.  Back at the house of our guide, a farmer who lives on the land, shows us a handful of stone age tools, hammer heads, axes, and pottery fragments found on his property.
These pieces, engravings and artifacts one normally would normally view behind glass cases of museum exhibitions about prehistoric peoples. But from the decades of conflict and war, people have yet to enter the region to study these treasures…or even know that they even exist.

Much is still unknown about the engravings and the exact age they emerged from, mostly due to the lack of scientific investigation and protection of these areas for research.

The Putumayo is also home for many indigenous traditions endangered by the rapid arrival of mining and oil. Ask many groups indigenous to the area and they will tell you what is happening is nothing less than a foreign invasion. The Cofán are the ancestral inhabitants of the region, yet have been pushed over generations further and further over the Ecuadorian border.  These jungles are the spiritual center of all indigenous groups in the region…Cofanes, Pastos, Emberas..etc.
For them, these jungles are the heart and lungs of the planet and need to be protected at all cost for us all. It is also the birthplace of the plant medicines (such as the yajé vine) that are the basis for their culture, traditions, ceremonies, and way of life for thousands of years. Endangering or tainting the waters and jungle would be same as poisoning their very culture.

Tensions have been high even the last years despite the peace process. But the conflict has left behind many echoes of violence, aggression and intimidation. Close to the disputed lands, a group interested in selling the lands off to oil companies have been sending messages, intimidating local farmers and campesinos into clearing out of the land.
The house of this pepper farmer was burned to the ground. Although when asked, it is unclear exactly who did it, the message remains clear. Tactics like this can be common throughout the region, having even many murders or “cleanings” in other communities not far off.
Mercenaries, paramilitaries, narco interests, and even bands of peasants with machetes are still active powers in the region. Yet in most cases it is the indigenous communities and campesino families caught in the middle of it all.

The territory is home to over 23 rivers which source the Amazon basin itself. These rivers not only feed life into the surrounding jungles, wildlife and communities, but are the originating waters for the rest of the Amazon across the whole of South America.
The water sources not affected by oil exploration and mining is some of the cleanest water you can find anywhere; drinkable directly from the rivers. The history of these industries entering unspoiled lands and leaving with rivers tainted with heavy metals and toxic chemicals is well documented.

The importance of uncontaminated fish and water sources to the people of the region, as well as keeping the region healthy for the rest of the planet, is an invaluable resource.

The territory of primitive jungle between Villagarzón and Orito is home to an array of communities; indigenous communities, farmers and rural families. Families live often deep in the jungles or in villages such as Castellano and la Cofania.

It is one of the last regions so far untouched by foreign oil and mining explorations. The territory is home to endangered species of the Andean Amazon such as the jaguar, andean bear, puma, numerous bird species, and has rivers cleaner than water you can buy in a bottle. As well, the unique plant life, fauna and medicinal technology in its forests is invaluable.
Currently this territory is under threat of its mineral rights being sold off to foreign oil and mining industries, which would be disastrous to its a fragile and unspoiled primitive rainforest.

Since the peace process has progressed, Colombia has opened up the region to the interests of privatized multinational oil and mineral industries to enter and establish a bigger presence in the jungle communities.
The deals struck between multinationals and the Colombian government originally left a small percentage of the revenues from oil production to the communities themselves. But companies negotiate even smaller percentages in the end. And given the endemic state of local and national corruption, little or none of that ever finds its way back to the communities that are affected the most. What is left behind is contamination of the rivers and environments. But the stories of contaminated water and food supplies don’t often make it to the outside world.

People live quite simply in the most basic of housing even in smaller villages.

But companies negotiate even smaller percentages in the end.

Putumayo is a south-west department of Colombia, making up part of the Western Amazon. The region is home to over 23 rivers which source the Amazon basin itself. The Andean Amazonian region is a lush ecosystem of primitive and for the most part untouched jungle. The biodiversity of plant, animal and bird species makes it unlike any other place on earth.
The fertile land is ideal for farming just about anything, and the abundance of clean, drinkable water makes it an invaluable resource. The pristine state of much of the Putumayo makes it a treasure not only for Colombians, but important for the rest of the world as well. Often referred to as the “lungs of the planet”, this region is responsible for a large part of the oxygen we all enjoy in other parts of the planet.
Relatively isolated from the rest of the country after decades of conflict, not many Colombians, or the world for that matter, know much about the region. With a history of paramilitaries, narco activity, mercenaries, domestic military actions and even covert CIA operations (with villagers and indigenous groups stuck in the middle)…its no wonder it has been a region left relatively inaccessible and out of public consciousness for some time.
Today, many of the old conflicts continue, but on a new stage of multinational oil and mining companies dominating the narrative.

Did you know that I'm sending 100% of my jewelry sale profits in December to the Makwa Initiative? It's an Indigenous-led resistance movement in Minnesota fighting Enbridge Line 3 pipeline from going through treaty lands.

This getting serious. We human should do something. Let's start with the petty things like changing our habit such as not wasting any electrical source, minimize the use of air conditioner etc. One small act lead to bigger change💙🌎
