HELP US TAKE OUR FUTURE INTO OUR OWN HANDS
Support Amazonian Traditional Medicine and Cultural Survival
We are an indigenous organization representing traditional healers of five ethnic groups from the Colombian Amazon Rainforest.
Help us take our future into our own hands by supporting indigenous traditional medicine and community health. Each $5,000 raised will fund women’s traditional medicine programs or supports one elder Yagé (ayahuasca) healer for a one-year period.
The current pandemic hasn’t stopped the Colombian armed conflict. Since January 2020 over 172 human rights and earth rights activists have been assassinated in Colombia. Extraction of hydrocarbons, illicit crops, illegal mining, land-grabbing, monoculture farming, cattle ranching and the presence of legally and illegally armed groups in our ancestral lands place our communities at risk of “cultural and physical extermination”, as stated by the Colombian Constitutional Court in 2009.
