Piquiatuba, Pará

Roger Williams University students at Piquiatuba on the outskirts of Santarém. Now a military base, it is said to have been one of the sites where Henry Wickham lived before making off with the rubber tree seeds in the 1870s. The university group was led by Professor Jeremy Campbell (anthropology) and Nathan Darity (Amizade). Dr. Patricia Chaves from UFOPA joined us on a visit to Bosque Santa Lúcia that day.
