Description

In the tradition of Columbia's Nasa indigenous people, Edilfredo's mother buried his umbilical cord to honor his first tie to Mother Earth. The changes of community violence and alcoholism have cut this bond. Edilfredo, now 17, has rediscovered his connection with the Earth and is working with the Indigenous Guard to cultivate diverse crops that nourish the human body, the indigenous spirit and the natural environment.
