From 1997 to 2001, I worked in a project called "Programa de Formación de Maestros Bilingües de la Amazonía Peruana" (FORMABIAP), a well known and recognized institution co-directed by the Indigenous Confederation of the Peruvian Amazon (AIDESEP) and the Ministry of Education through the "Instituto Superior Pedagógico Loreto". The project’s main objective is to train indigenous people from different Amazonian ethnic groups as bilingual teachers and to create culturally and linguistically appropriate school materials (some of which can be downloaded here). My primary contributions to the project include: research, teaching, and writing classroom materials especially for the Kukama-Kukamiria. At present I continue to participate in some of FORMABIAP'S specific projects, such as the production of classroom materials with the Secoya people, and raising awareness about language endangerement in the region.
Here is a list of some instructional materials in which I have participated whithin the institutional frame of FORMABIAP and through the Ministry of Education of Peru. I had an active role in the design, production, compilation and/or review of the following documents:
