Within the framework of the course "Introduction to scientific research", at the Faculty of Social Sciences of the Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos and in agreement with the Federation of Native Communities of the Ucayali and tributaries, we will develop a series of cartographic activities. of the hamlets that are part of this federation. The data of the areas of the Ucayali and Aguaytía rivers, among other bodies of water, the access roads to the communities, trucks, footways and buildings will also be improved and updated.

FECONAU is a representative indigenous organization of more than 30 native communities belonging to the Shipibo-Konibo, Asháninka, Isconahua and Awajun indigenous peoples, located in the districts of Callería, Nueva Requena and Yarinacocha. The organization was created in 1981, and is one of the oldest indigenous federations in the Peruvian Amazon. FECONAU participated in the constitution of the Interethnic Association for the Development of the Peruvian Rainforest (AIDESEP). In its organizational vision, the clearly defined indigenous policy stands out, with healthy and orderly indigenous territories, with autonomy for the management and conservation of their territories, with trained human resources exercising self-determination to achieve the integral sustainable development of indigenous peoples.
