About The Teacher

Maestro Luis Marquez Pinedo is Mama Rosa’s middle son. Luis designs our education programs and teaches language, culture and history in the Pachamama Shipibo School to the children from the local community and our guests. His Shipibo name is Soi Sani which means: wonderful, sociable and friendly man. This name suits him well as he is all of the above. From early childhood Luis knew he wanted to be a teacher and after he finished high school he received a grant to study in the Bilingual Teachers of the Amazon Training Program. Luis has served as Principal in Santa Elisa, Pedagogic Director of the public Bilingual Institute in Yarinacocha, and a Teacher Training Specialist at the University of the Peruvian Amazon. In 1999 Maestro Luis travelled to Germany to support the transcription of the Shipibo language to Spanish by the Peruvian linguist Pilar Valenzuela. The book was published under the name Koshi Shinanya Aibo for those who are interested. To conclude his impressive 23 years of experience in education, the last few years Luis has been working as an advisor and monitor at the University Peruana Cayetano Heredia. Like all the other members in his family, he was brought up around Shamanism and Ayahuasca. He has extensive knowledge of medicinal plants and sings many Icaros in ceremony.
