The Cenepa River Basin is found in the region of Amazonas, Province of Condorcanqui and District of El Cenepa. This basin has formed part of the Awajún territory from time immemorial, and there are a total of forty-two communities and fourteen hamlets. Only one community and one hamlet pertain to the Wampís people. The 2007 census estimated a population of 8,474 inhabitants. The capital of the district is Huampami (220 m.a.s.l.), where the only concentration of non-indigenous population in the basin is found (around ninety non-indigenous inhabitants).
