Tairona Heritage Trust
The Tairona Heritage Trust is a small UK Charity (Reg. Charity No.1196707) founded after the making of the first Kogi film. We work to help protect their indigenous communities and culture in the Sierra Nevada, Colombia. The mission of the Trust is to magnify the Kogis’ voice, to help them defend their culture and its territorial integrity, and to learn from them how to better protect the planet we all share. The Kogi believe they can help us to keep dangerous and destructive forces in check.
The Kogi are descendants of the Tairona and are the last surviving civilization from the world of the Inca and Aztec.
They are an indigenous people who consider themselves to be the guardians of the earth and are worried by our attempts to destroy it.
The mountain – in Colombia – is their home, it is quite literally a microcosmos, a mirror of the planet on which every ecological zone is represented. The impact of the modern world is affecting their environment and from their vantage point on the mountain they can see how this is damaging the rest of the planet.
The Trust needs your help to support this mission.
The Kogi message is important for us all. They consider themselves to be the guardians of the earth and are worried by our attempts to destroy it. They want their voice and knowledge to be heard around the world and for us to take action to protect the planet that we all share.
The Kogi need your help to do this.
