The map indicates areas where indigenous peoples from the Ampiyacu, Apayacu, Putumayo, and Algodón watersheds extract forest
resources, including areas considered sacred and traditionally regarded as sanctuaries for plants and animals. The map was
drawn in 2001, prior to the rapid inventory, through interviews with members of the 26 indigenous communities participating in
the proposal to create this Reserved Zone.
