How to save a culture? How to unite tribes that are separated since hundreds of years? First of all not any culture. A culture that is almost unknown to the western civilisation, speaks an ancient language and has, speaking for the

Koguis very little in common with the way the majority of people lives life or perceives the world. A culture that lives, besides a lighter and a pot literally like in the beginning of time. Little is known about the

Kogui, the Wiwa and the Arhuacos. The Arhuacos are the most advanced tribe of the three in communication, foundation of organisations and tradings with the rest of the world. The indigenous tribes are trading very high qualities of Coffee, Cacao,

Panela ( Sugar Cane) and Mochillas,(very beautiful and robust handmade bags). To save this unique wonderful and mystic culture of the "Jaguars" this is how they call themselves, we first HAVE TO know about them. Why? Because the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta is world`s nb. 1 nature reserve with the highest number of threatened mammals, birds and amphibians on earth. How is it possible that almost no one knows about the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta? The mountains raise from the white coastline to 5775 meters. The Sierra is a tropical Forest and only for advanced hikers. The tribes have been avoiding contact with the"civilized", how the Jaguars call those that took off the tribal white cloth and live in a western way of life. This is very much understandable considering their last 400 years of history that have left deep scars  still to be healed. There are three aspects of the pact. Saving the national park Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta, the knowledge of the Mamas (caretakers of the territory and spiritual leaders of the tribe) and supporting the tribes in the foundation of unity otganisaions representing the three tribes. Our answer is the "Unity and Peace Contract" without negotiation and question, regular recordings of the knowledge of the Mamas,  interaction with other caretakers of irreplaceable nature reserves and the Organization Of Unity Of The Indigenous Communities Of The Sierra Nevada De Santa Marta in Berlin. Respecting and protecting the indigenous rights of integrity of their territory and undisturbed life is always the first law of action while syncronizing the efforts to save the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta by sharing the beauty of the biodiversity of life in the ancient territory with the world and supporting the tribes to restore the damage caused by ignorance and lack of attention . From who? From all of us. It is our responsibility and duty as  world community to look after the irreplaceable nature reserves. It does not only enrich our lives to become aware of the beauty of life on our planet, it is also the only way to protect this fountains of life from extinction: Collective care and attension. The Sun Tribe has arrived . We are the ones creating the biggest and greatest global  network of care and attention of all times together protecting planet earth. How? Unity. Without question and negotiations. For the well being of the planet all differences and difficulties come to a good end. The global public-domain network connecting independent nature conserving organizations of the essencial nature reserves with the world community is the perfect beginning of this new blossoming of planet earth.






​The House of the 4 Tribes in Kasakumake, Yeruwa and  El Encanto will be the place where the tribes can meet and share knowledge. Here the Mamos will teach the children the  ancient knowledge and also the 4. Tribe is always at home there. The young Kogui generation deserves to hear all of their many thousand years old history and preserve the knowledge of nature conservation, medicine, astronomy, religion , the "power of the ever blossoming Spirit" the Poporo, as well as the names and the living conditions of the plants, minerals and animals of the Sierra Nevada. To build this place of encountering the other tribes with an open-heart and the pact to unconditionally work together to safe culture, land and people is an important symbolic gift given with all our hearts creating space for the new dialog. When the house is built come and join the Unity of Tribes Celebration and the Mamajeru Ceremony of the Golden Sun Cycle.
