Description: The community of the lower Oiapogue River inhabits the Uaçá, Juminã and Galibi indigenous territories, located in the municipality of Oiapoque of the Ampá Sate. These villages have an indigenous population of around 7,000, made up of Palikur, galibi-Kali'na, Karipuna and galibi-Marworno ethnicities. The communities produce manioc flour, which they then sell in the city of Oiapoque. Each year these communities organize general meetings to discuss their shared issues and to propose changes to authorities.
The Uaçá indigenous territory sustainably manages native bees with the support of the Peabiru Institute, The Nature Conservancy, and Funai. This activity generates income, especially for women and young people in the community, and promotes forest conservation.
Conservation Area: Uaçá I and II, and Jumina indigenous territories.
