Abstract

The work is a recovery of ancestral knowledge, whose objective was focused on rescuing the knowledge of the production of hammocks and saddlebags, and its commercialization using barter, just as the aboriginal ancestors of the Manabí territory did. Field research and an interview applied to a connoisseur of ancestral knowledge, a native of the Montecristi canton, were used as a method. The results were the traditional knowledge of the production of hammocks and saddlebags using the spindle and the loom, and the forms of commerce used and transmitted from generation to generation in these rural communities descended from aboriginal cultures. Conclusions were reached such as the importance of recovering the ancestral knowledge of the cultures from which we descend as part of the intercultural wealth and popular customs linked to this territory.
