Kapé collects stories of native cultures. Because stories are a form of transmission, they are an essential part of that what makes a culture. If a story is forgotten, a part of that culture will be lost. Creating a digital memory, an archive of stories, a platform to share and transmit, a bank of memories for future generations.
The first project of Kapé started in 2016 after following a Shipibo story into the Peruvian rainforest. A story that tells about the Koman Kenia lake, the place of origin for the Shipibo people. This lake had suffered illegal logging and archeological theft. The community protecting this lake needed support to reopen the path and to take care of this place. With the help of Kapé the community was able to open the path and protect the lake.
100 books were printed on December 2017.
