The Kogi (or Kaggaba)
The Kogi are a true pre-Colombian civilization. The Kogi and their 3 sister tribes live interdependently on the highest mountain range coming out of the ocean at the coast of northern Colombia. This has been their home for millennia. They are one of the only surviving cultures that did not get annihilated by the arrival of the Spanish conquistadores over 500 years ago. It demanded great skill to survive the harsh conditions that they encountered, whilst fleeing to higher altitudes where they could not be reached by their enemies. They had the tenacity to preserve their pristine culture and way of life, and this is now a great blessing for the entire world. They were selected by the Great Mother to be the caretakers of “The Heart of the World,” from where they work hard to keep the balance and natural order of the planet.
In 1989 they allowed a non-indigenous person into their sacred environment, so he could create a documentary about the urgent need for change within each human being. It was becoming increasingly difficult for them to keep the Earth in harmony. The film is called From the Heart of the World: The Elder Brothers’ Warning. The Kogi do not understand our unresponsiveness to their first serious warning. They are deeply concerned that the ecological imbalance created by the “Younger Brother” cultures has reached such a critical point that the Kogi need help to keep their sacred sites protected in order to keep global balance. This is why they have decided to send a second warning through a new documentary called Aluna, the movie. They want us to know that if we do not change our ways, we will be seriously reprimanded by the Great Mother, Aluna, and her impeccable laws of homoeostasis.
We feel deeply called to listen to their warnings and in return are calling for action to support them. Donations made to the North American branch of our organisation, Koginka Sewaluna Foundation, allow the Kogi to purchase the land and sacred places that are rightfully theirs, which have been invaded by reckless non-indigenous cultures and people. Without these places they cannot continue to work in Sacred Reciprocity with the ancestral spiritual seed guardians who hold the harmony of all living things in Creation.
