The Ancient Ways' mission is to learn from and preserve the traditional ways of indigenous peoples around the world, and throughout time, by exploring their art, music, and cosmology, so that we can educate and encourage people today to develop ways to live which are more environmentally and socially sustainable.
Ancient Ways is located in Oregon 's mid-Willamette Valley, and is based in Lacomb, a rural area in the foothills of the Cascades. The organization, as a community, is an ever-changing organism. The local people who have created this network extend east to Sweet Home, south to Lebanon and Eugene , west to Albany , Philomath, and Corvallis and north to Monmouth, Stayton and Salem . This includes those who have been brought together by sharing the sweet sounds of Zimbabwean music, as well as those who find connection in the heart of Ancient Ways as a center for healing of both our planet and ourselves.
