Pedro Kintaro is one of the senior men in a village that sits on a densely forested range of hills dividing the Pangoa and Ene valleys. Asháninka accounts suggest that the key liaison to the guerrillas was not Antonio Meza but the peasant activist Juan Paucarcaja. Manuel Ashivánti remembers that he went to visit Ernesto to question him about the Itomi Pavá. The absence of detailed field reports may account for the near invisibility of Asháninkas in embassy documents. The sudden appearance of guerrillas in Satipo Province provoked fears of an attack upon the town of Satipo by combined elements of communists and Indians. From the Asháninka point of view, promises of material goods were entirely appropriate to a vision of apocalyptic transformation and the launching of a new era of social justice. Asháninka support for the war of Itomi Pavá was slipping away.
