Maloca is a grassroots support organization that works with indigenous peoples living in the Amazon basin. The term “Maloca,” refers to the ancestral long houses used by the indigenous peoples of the Amazon, and is symbolic of their approach to supporting culturally-based and community-identified strategies for defending culture and territory. Maloca works directly with indigenous leaders as well as with an array of volunteers and sponsors in the U.S. to raise awareness about the needs of community partners and find means to help them establish self-sustaining strategies to address these needs.
