Ibulliance: Yasmin's Circles of Hope
On the slopes of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in Colombia, four indigenous groups have lived in simplicity according to their nature-rich spiritual traditions, untouched by the rest of the world. They call their sacred mountain Umunukunu, and entertain no interest in meeting you or me there, as they have loved their life as they've known it: a pure and harmonious whole. Except, that is, for the Kankuama. 15,000 remaining individuals who, by inhabiting the lower reaches of the mountain, have come to know tourist's cameras and western developers and the concept of money. Their diminished cultural and spiritual identity leaves them poorer in every way, and in need of work in this new world where they find themselves.
