Honoring Ancestral Wisdom
Preserving Indigenous Practices
Indigenous sacred practices are being diluted, exploited, and lost.
As a result, they are at risk of physical and cultural extinction.
As the global community begins to embrace and engage in these sacred practices, how do we nurture and uplift these communities, traditions and medicines?
We are listening to indigenous leaders to identify and support their needs.
We believe in amplifying the voices of traditional wisdom holders and empowering them with tools and resources.
Centro Ceremonial, Maxa Yuawita
The Wixárika are an indigenous tribe that has been dedicated to living in harmony with nature and all beings for thousands of years.
They are caretakers of Wirikuta, the world´s most biodiverse cactus garden on the earth. Wirikuta is currently under threat by silver mining and industrial tomato farming.
The Wixárika´s territories have greatly been reduced due to modern expansion. This has created all sorts of problems for them and made life more expensive. Their sacred pilgrimage and ceremony is at risk of being lost.
Indigenous-led programs where communities and inviduals are given a platform, a voice, and ownership of their sacred practices.
