Altiplano Home of the Aymara PeopleDownloadable Video - 2000
This film provides a window into the experiences of Maryknoll Missioner husband and wife team Maribeth Bathom and Steve Nathe as they live and work with the Aymara people of Pilcuyo, Peru. The ancient Andean community has cultivated the Altiplano for two millennia and believes that Pachamama, or Mother Earth, provides fertility in the harsh climate. Bathom and Nathe form a team with lay church leader Pedro Copaja to implement agricultural and healthcare projects while caring for their baby son. They gradually gain local trust while learning about their host culture.
