Abstract:

Living on an isolated pyramid mountain in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in Colombia, the Kogi are the last surviving civilization from the world of the Inca and Aztec, and their cities are untouched by the outer world. The mountain is quite literally a micro-cosmos, a mirror of the planet on which every ecological zone is represented and in which most of the plants and animals of the planet can live. The Kogi believe that they live in order to care for the world and keep its natural order functioning, and they understand that mining and deforestation are destroying the critical interconnections within the natural world. The words of the Kogi message are "protect the rivers," and this program shows how crucial it is to draw on indigenous understanding of environmental challenges and solutions.
