A visit to Albuquerque
Albuquerque is honored to host the Teyuna mamos and zagas, spiritual leaders of the Arhuaco, Kankuamo, Kogii and Wiwi people of Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta region of Colombia. Known as Guardians of the World, they were featured in several documentaries, including Aluna, which can be viewed online (see trailer below).
For eons these indigenous peoples hardly ventured beyond their homeland. But, now they are concerned for the health of the planet and believe it is critical to speak to the industrial world about climate change and water. The group is touring particular water places in the United States to speak, to pray, to offer healing, and to beg us to act.
Here are details of the group's national tour. This includes a handful of events in Albuquerque.
