Visiting an 'Indigenous' Village - Good or Bad?

Visiting an 'Indigenous' Village - Good or Bad?

We recently received a comment from clients saying that 'a visit to an Indian community ... left us feeling rather uncomfortable: they performed a dance and then sold us trinkets, but we felt quite ambivalent about the whole set-up'. The community in question was that of an Amazonian tribe, the Yagua, visited as part of the Ceiba Tops - and many other Amazon lodge - itineraries. 

In this blog, we examine the pros and cons of these visits.
