This book documents the colonization of many indigenous cultures in the Amazon under direction of DH grandfather. He is seated with white socks. He signed and dedicated this book to his best friend, which was returned to DH family by the Samper family in 1951. This is companion page to 1930 Iquitos, Peru.
I am amazed at the cultural similarities of the Boras women with their ceremonial dance, plaited hair and body paint to cultures on the African continent.
