The women of the Wangki, indigenous to the Miskito and Mayangna ethnic groups, live on the lush banks of the northern Nicaraguan Coco River or Wangki in the Miskito language. They have historically suffered violence and marginalization on three fronts, for being indigenous, poor an women. Faced by the unregulated advance of the agricultural frontier,the women of the Wangki are confronting the struggle to stand united and empowered despite their surroundings of hostility and machismo. Together, the women on the Wangki preserve their identity, maintain their ancestral customs and uphold their pride in respecting and defending the environment.
