PEACE MEAL – Brothers eat together

From of all communities we had visited, we invited Kogis to the PEACE DINNER – our PEACE MEAL in the garden of our finca.

Fourth Kogis meeting: Kogis from Kuinyimake and San Antonio

It took several days of preparation and a meeting in advance with one of the three Kogi-Mamas so that this encounter could take place.

Our third Kogis’ visit leads us to the Kogi-community Seiviaka including spending the night there

The Seiviaka-community lives in a village further above in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta.

Tungueka – The second visit to the Kogis

The drive to the Tungueka´s Kogi-village passes off over scree, through water and narrow roads.
