The Story

Arhuaco elder Calixto Suarez is here representing his people, along with sister tribes the Kogui, Wiwa and Kankuamo, on a vital mission to recover their ancestral lands in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of Santa Marta, Colombia, which are so important for mankind. Western occupation of the territory has forced the Arhuaco to relocate to the higher lands of the Sierras. This displacement has brought imbalance and disharmonies to their communities, the earth, and the planets. As the human family becomes increasingly disconnected from our ancestral lands, this state of planetary discord is worsening. It is because of this that Calixto is on a mission to help us reconnect to and spiritually nourish our ancestral lands and holy places. The people of the Sierra Nevada believe that in order to establish peace and equilibrium on the Earth, we must all recover, nourish and heal our holy places and ancestral lands.

If we can raise the necessary travel funds for Calixto, there will be an extraordinary opportunity to hold council with him as he receives and shares direct transmissions about how to restore balance to the lands and people of Arizona and California. 

Arizona: September 16-17

California: September 22-28

We need your help to make these circles happen!

Resources are still needed to bring Calixto to our communities. Whether or not you can join us in person, please support this prayer with your heartfelt donations, which will support his travel costs, housing and food. All additional funding raised will go directly to assisting the Arhuaco people recover their sacred lands. Thank you for being a part of restoring balance to the Earth!

What Are Our Goals?

"As indigenous people, our compromise and responsibility is to take care of human beings and the world.

Our purpose is to recover the lands within the limits of the ancestral territory, the holy places, which are so important for mankind.

In the ancestral territory of the mountain, we traditionaly had two different spaces: in the highlands, where there is snow and lagunes, ceremonies were held and certain sacred places (energetic points) were worked on and in the lower lands we lived and farmed.

With the western worlds occupation of the territory throughout time, we have been forced to move to the higher lands of the range and live there. We consider that this situation has unbalanced both our communities and the planets, generating unbalances, disharmonies and natural phenomena througout all the world. For this reason we are searching for the way to reclaim the low lands of the mountain range.

It has been many years that İ have been managing the recovery of lands throughout Europe. Talking of the importance of the lands at an energetic level and for cultivation in order to self-sustain the community.

With the help of people from Europe, we bought 1000 hectares of land and recovered primordial places in order to continue with or tasks and strengthen our principles. İt has been nearly 14 years and we have achıeved many things. That is what is important and we are thankful for this."

Who Are The Arhuaco People?

"We are one of the 4 İndigenous Communities (Arhuaco, Kogui, Wiwa & Kankuamo) that live to the north of the Colombian snowy mountain (Sierra Nevada) of Santa Marta. We descend from the Tayronas. They left us in this space, caring for and harmonizing the Earth and Humanity. We live in harmony with all natures beings: water, earth, fire, wind, the sun, humans and also animals and plants which are essence of the divine.

The primary prinicples that we teach our children and community are to live with, look after and harmonize. We believe that all people have the right to a piece of land to care and cultivate. We believe in equality.

Everyone takes part in the community decisions. Even the young girls and boys. Our tradition is that of meeting, talking, thinking and deciding together; we always try to be connected. This is where our strength dwells and this is how we take and manage the conflicts that appear on or territory."

Who Are The Mamos?

"The Mamos are people who have an energetic spiritual elevation. They are the spiritual leaders of the community that act as doctors, psychologists, priests and/or judges. Since a very early age, they are tought to perceive the vıbration and energy of all natural beings.

This knowledge of the laws of nature has been nurtured for many generations by the Mamos and we do not want it to cease or be lost."
