Suriname: The Indigenous Navigator, "It really works!"
Suriname Testimonials on the use of the IN surveys in Suriname: “It really works!”
In recent weeks (May-June 2019), the research team was working in villages along the Nickerie River, in the forested interior of Suriname. Tapoeripa, Post Utrecht and Cupido are small villages inhabited mostly by Arawak (Lokono) people, who traditionally make their living from fishing, hunting, gathering and planting. The survey process here in West Suriname identified some cross-cutting issues which had also been identified by local communities in other regions.
