Reading in Shuar Language and Spanish

Maria Clara Sharupi Jua has written and published poetry in Shuar and Spanish, she has also read her work in venues around Latin America and the United States.  Sharupi has co-authored three books and is currently working on a new book of short stories entitled Tarimiat.  She also served on a team of professional Shuar translators that edited the official translation of the Ecuadorian constitution from Spanish into Shuar Chicham. Sharupi Jua was born and raised in the Amazon rain forest and her work mixes imagery from nature and the traditions of her indigenous culture.  Such imagery and traditions are central to the folklore and artistic expressions of Amazonian peoples.

The Shuar nation includes more than 110,000 peoples settled primarily within the nation-state of Ecuador, in various upper and basin river areas, including those of the Amazon.
