We support a Council of Elders and regional gatherings between Indigenous elders and knowledge holders from 13 different communities in Colombia and Indigenous students enrolled in the Degree in Pedagogy of Mother Earth at the University of Antioquia. The purpose of this gathering is to create a space to nourish, revive, and protect ancestral knowledge and cultural practices and create dialogues of knowledge and exchanges that allow participants to restore the ancestral and collective memory. This project seeks to generate critical, spiritual, and pedagogical spaces to help solve the problems faced by the participating communities.
