Mission Statement

We support indigenous people as they celebrate and teach their ancestral knowledge and create thriving modern communities aligned with their traditional vision.

Description

We currently collaboarate with the Emberá and Wounaan people in Darién, Panama. We sponsor a program of classes in which elders teach the younger generations the traditional culture and language, aiming to keep alive personal and community options for independence and resilience. To support a community's own desires for sustainable technological development, we also offer workshops and discussions about sustainable growth options. We are guided by an all-Indigenous Advisory Council.

We are inspired by these and other organizations: Pachamama Alliance, Four Worlds International, The Barefoot College, Local Futures, Schooling the World, and Cultural Survival.
