A project to support the traditional way of life of native tribes in Colombia. The aim of the project is to support and promote the original life style of the indigenous tribes living in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and to acquire financial support to purchase soil and ground for the tribes. In this way we can contribute to maintain this amazing, wise and unique civilization.
Our main goals
Purchase of the property
Main goal is gaining funds to buy soil and ground into the property of the native tribes community. We would love to support them in the construction of traditional shanty, the cultivation of original crops and the breeding of the domestic animals. Establishing protection zones where natives can continue their traditional way of life without worrying about further expatriation. This step is very important for the independence and self-sufficiency of indigenous tribes.
We buy traditional bags (mochillas) at a fair price directly from tribe women from Arhuaco, Kogi, Wiwa and Waya tribes. In this way we can support their independence. You can buy these bags in our e-shop, other option is to contributed to the purchase of the sheep wool, cotton or fique plant which are used for the preparation of fiber to the manufacture of the bags.
Our mutual intention is to interconnect our two worlds. We would love to link with these people, who have maintained their traditional way of life for thousands of years, share their wisdom with our prosperity in such way that we can contribute for example to buying land for particular tribe families. They still know their roots, have the wisdom and knowledge which we Europeans, "younger brothers" as they call us, have almost lost.

Renewable sources of food
Purchase seeds and seedlings for growing their own crops and thereby increase their self-sufficiency.
Projects of removal batteries and plastic waste from Sierra Nevada
Many natives nor colonists are not aware of the impact of discarded batteries on the nature. Local, and tourists almost do not care about the environment. Therefore, it is necessary to provide sufficient education on waste management and to ensure the cleaning of the country from the garbage through network of the volunteers. In the future, we plan to motivate local businesses to recycle waste and reduce the burden on the environment in this area.
Keeping traditions and passing wisdom

Purchase of white fabrics to produce aboriginal
garments, which promotes their belonging to the native
