The Manta culture.- The Manta culture (800-1530 AD) was established in the Ecuadorian coast in the southern province of Manabi, Guayas and extending to the island of Puna, in a variant known as Huancavilca culture. In general, the landscape is arid strip of coast, interspersed with strips moist, tropical climate hills to the East. Being seafaring peoples, it is almost predictable that the settlement patterns of maintenance has been by the sea. In fact, only in the areas of blanket and Salango, there is an appreciable penetration into the coastal hinterland, where they took advantage of their mountainous topography to locate their main centers, as is the case of Cerro de Cerro Jaboncillo sheet and, if not more than 200 m. height above the sea. The Manta culture was discovered in the early twentieth century, Marshall Saville who produced his monumental "Antiquities of Manabi", with extensive description of material culture, mainly from sites located in the hills above. Subsequently, in 1917 and 1923, and Caamano Jijón systematic excavations carried out in the same area, unable to publish the results thereof. Still, he managed to formulate for the first time, the constituent elements of the archaeological culture in his Anthropology Prehispdnica Manta in Ecuador, including the possibility of the existence of a similar culture in the province of Guayas. In the 1950s, Bushnell, Stirling, and Estrada was undertaken independently by further research, especially in the Guayas basin, with Estrada who would make the existence of the southern or Huancavilcas Manta, quite similar to their northern neighbors, but with the except that the stone did not work. Finally, in the 1980s, the area of Agua Blanca was investigated by Colin McEwan, whose valuable contribution focused on the role of the chairs of stone steles and other anthropomorphic and zoomorphic figures in the creation of social order in the Andes cosmogony and in the maintenance and social organization arising from settlement pattern.

 
Reforestation

Proyecto de reforestación de Palo Santo: un proyecto visionario

Ten years ago it started an investigation about the history and properties of the Palo Santo tree located in Puerto Lopez County, in the Manabi Province. Nowadays, at that same place there’s an interesting reforestation project taking place, which is trying to rescue the forgotten tradition of planting for tomorrow.

Unlike other species, the Palo Santo must fall by its own in order to extract the Palo Santo Essential oils and also get incense sticks which are used in aromatherapy . In this process not a single tree is cut down, doing so causes it to lose its properties. The wood that falls is what The Artisan PaloSanto EcuadorianHands uses to manufacture the products, and despite the fact that we don’t deforest, we do feel the responsibility to return to nature those fallen trees.

We therefore support the Reforestation Project in Puerto Lopez, through a percentage of money generated by the sale of the products of Palo Santo, which is goes directly to the project. This funding enabled the creation of a greenhouse 6 years ago. Since then an estimated 40,000 trees have been planted. Many of these have been delivered to schools, colleges, institutions, Municipality of Puerto Lopez and even the Machalilla National Park, while the rest have given to people in a more individually way.

In addition to helping preserve the environment, the sale of Palo Santo has allowed the training of artisans who work in the whole process of production of the various items. There are about 25 people who receive a fair salary and claim to be happy with their work situation and committed to deliver a quality product.

The ultimate goal is to be able to create a forest of Palo Santo for everyone, which will generate oxygen and household work for the local people. Artisans are the ones who will execute the project and thus must continue their training and develop a culture of long-term preservation. All these activities are very important to secured the long-lasting supply of this natural Essential oil.

At the moment we are working on the paperwork and all the necessary permits to keep detailed records of all the advancements of the program. However, in the future customers who purchase Palo Santo products will be certain of their support to the environment through a satellite map which will show the places where the trees are being replanted.

What we have outlined here is a visionary project, the path is not easy, but it is important that we support the work of the craftsmen who still live in harmony with nature and take care of our only home, Earth. 

And you? Are you ready to adopt a Palo Santo tree and contribute to the protection of the environment? Get Palo Santo Essential Oils and Incense products and make the difference!
