Over the years, the indigenous families that live in that region organized themselves in a society called “Sateré-Mawé” and received highlights in the international economy, being the first Brazilian indigenous organization to directly export their goods to foreign markets. 

In 2021, United Nationals Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) recognized the relevant contribution of the people from “Sateré-Mawé” in building a “new Amazonian bioeconomy”.
