Restoring Ancestral Wisdom, Nurturing Nature's Harmony
We work to Preserve and Regenerate the Ancestral Land and Wisdom of the Kamentsa Nation through Education, Reforestation, Supporting Indigenous Elders, and Cultural Traditions. We Protect the Environment and Empower our Indigenous Communities to Create a more Sustainable and Harmonious Future for All.
In the Sacred Valley of Sibundoy, in the Amazon of Colombia, we are working in alliance with the Kamentsa Nation to Protect and Regenerate their Ancestral Land and Ways of life for the benefit of Humankind.
Guided by the wisdom of Mother Earth, Apus, and Plant Teachers, OIOC Preserves the Ancestral Memories of the Grandmothers and Grandfathers who once traversed the sacred lands of Putumayo, Colombia. In their ancient words and timeless art, they safeguard the Original Instructions of the Creator, illuminating the path of 'Good Living' (Sumak Kawsay) and fostering harmony with all creation. OIOC's Commitment extends to Land, Ancestral Memory, Territory, and Actions that Together Forge a Meaningful Impact on Our World.
At OIOC, We're dedicated to education, reforestation, supporting indigenous elders, and uplifting cultural traditions. We protect the environment for future generations by planting trees and nurturing biodiversity. Simultaneously, we honor and empower the Indigenous Communities, preserving their wisdom and vibrant culture. Together, we're forging a more sustainable and harmonious future for all.
The Kametsa indigenous works in alliance with the international community to support, preserve, and protect the sacred land, community, and ancient wisdom. Through our Nonprofit ORG OIOC and CSN in the USA, we support projects, including basic needs for the community, strategic land buybacks, restoration of native ecosystems, cultural exchange, and sustainable living solutions.
ONGOING and COMPLETED PROJECTS
With the support of the Circle of Sacred Nature ORG in the USA for ten years (since 2013), the founders of OIOC and the Shanayoy Healing Center have steadfastly supported the indigenous resistance of the Kamentsa people and their empowerment. This has been made possible through the reciprocity of individuals and organizations that have learned and continue to follow the path of ancestral medicine. Here are some of the completed projects:
