The Sikuani Way of Life
Have you ever heard of the Sikuani indigenous community in Colombia? The Sikuani people are known as the guardians of nature and believe in the power of dance to transform the world and awaken humanity. In this post, we’ll be diving into the rich traditions of the Sikuani and exploring their unique cultural beliefs.
Their first stop was Abuelo Clemente’s Casa de Pensamiento, where they spent six hours learning about the three main plants the Sikuani work with – Caapi, Yopo, and Tobacco – and listening to Abuelo Clemente’s teachings. He spoke about the challenges facing humanity today, including addiction to our devices, the rise in mental illness, and the importance of protecting nature.
Abuelo Clemente also shared that the Sikuani people believe that everything on this earth is alive, and that it is their custom from birth to ask for permission to use the things that God created. He talked about how the Sikuani are guardians of nature and that they dance to awaken humanity and heal mother earth.
“This dance is about forming a new humanity for future generations.”
