The Q’ente Textile Program supports indigenous communities and women weavers by revitalizing textile traditions through its social enterprise. The Mink’a Knowledge Exchange Program aims to raise global awareness and responsibility in schools and universities in North America through courses and presentations, and through our Field School in Peru.
