    we a more more a like the indigenous people should be responsible for the sustainble development of their own land, it’s safety and it’s important should be protected

  • I have been following the Kojimamos since the very first filming of a UK director, who was fortunate to gain their trust. They are like family to me. I hear & feel everything they say & stand for, as you were feeling in the interview. I wonder if you could make this one video interview available for all peoples to see, hear Calixto’s wisdom? I would love to pass this one interview to my Son & other younger people.
    I too, as senior activist are working to edu people of the Commons on a blog; a lifelong Nature Artist of the essence of Nature. Long beyond holding a job or asking for money for my work, it is a service to life on GAIA.
    Thank you for educating the masses of our inter-connectedness & community.

  • Thank you so much for this beautiful and powerful reminder of the power of reconnecting with our essence. I feel like my mind received a humbling, fine tuning service! I feel reassured about acting from the power of a peaceful heart. “I have no protection. This would weaken me. I only have my love and my faith” Powerful reminder. Namaste ?

  • Thank you so much for this deep talk – every word is a prayer – we can learn so much from this holistic point of view! i feel very supported to the work we are doing here in Tamera!

    ¡Muchas gracias! ♡~♡

    Deep reminding and therefor encouraging for myself to act, to speak, to think everything out of my heart (and honour also my brain).

    To feel the connecting of all kind of expressions of life (some would say: god) is such wonderful. ♡~☆~♡ That feels like living for me.

    Thank you again, Kosha, for your wonderful presence during this talk, too! ♡~♡

    Unfortunately in Africa, I do not see the same wisdom. Tribal wars are still occurring in today’s time.

    La responsabilidad en la vida es dar sin esperar recibir nada a cambio. ¡Me encanta!
    Estoy impresionado con su respeto por todas las culturas, después de todo lo que su tribu debe haber pasado en el pasado. Una gran lección de amor y tolerancia.
    Me pregunto cómo un ciudadano promedio puede poner esto en práctica …

    Great last question: what can each of us bring to humanity?

  • Linda Moore

    Truly appreciated the depth of wisdom being shared here. Remarkable that even with subtitles and internet, this depth came through so clearly. Thank you!

    Calixto, muchas gracias, tocaste mi corazón

  • Alex Johnson

    I too request that this one video could please be made available to be shared widely and inspire the young people of the world.

  • I tried to move this to Facebook and it said the url was not accurate.
    I loved this teaching….of what is essential…our essence is of value and it is that simple.

  • CJ Del Piero

    Estas palabras tienen poder… these words have power… and feel like rain on dry land. My soul seems to come to life in hearing Calixto speak in ways that refuse to divide humanity and that call indigenous communities with gifts of wisdom to serve as caretakers of creation who hold vigil for all humanity. What a powerful vision!

  • Helena

    I missed this And really was looking forward to it. I am of Muisca-Chibcha indigenous descent of the Bogota area but our tribes are related and I have known about this man for a while and his every word resonates to my core!
