Nauta is a city located in Loreto Province's northeastern part, in the Peruvian Amazon, around 100 km south of the provincial capital Iquitos. Nauta lies on the north bank of Maranon River, an important tributary of Upper Amazon, a few miles from Rio Ucayali's confluence.
Established by the leader of Cocama peoples, Manuel Pacaya–Samiria, following the 1830 uprising at Jesuit mission of Lagunas, the city of Nauta soon became the major commercial hub of Peruvian selva baja (also known as Omagua, or Amazonian lowlands). A paddle steamer from Brazil made it all the way to the town in 1853.
Nauta city is the primary destination of the only main road leading from Iquitos. It is a staging area for a number of ecotourism lodges and ships on Maranon River. Boats take travelers from Nauta to Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve.
In 2013, Nauta residents, in collaboration with Radio Ucamara, created a kids' rap video in Kukama-Kukamiria dialect. The local radio station was involved in conserving the language for several years, and "started managing a school called Ikuar, with the goal of teaching the language through songs and traditional story telling."
