“Our culture comes from the forest. The forest teaches us how to live, and our culture teaches us how to protect the forest.”
Nemonte Nenquimo, Waorani
Plant medicines. Healing systems. Hunting, fishing and agricultural techniques. Pathways to spiritual enlightenment. Language, stories and myths. Cosmovision. Ways of life that care for, sustain and defend one of our planet’s most complex, rich, mysterious and important ecosystems. Thousands of years of cultural knowledge is on the verge of disappearing.
