Meet the Elders
In regards to
The earth has a history, our history and the elders are its bearers. They are the keepers of ancestral wisdoms that heal their people. Their words carry us with their truth and the power of their teachings. They are a bit our grandmothers and our grandfathers to all because their path is that of our history, the history of humanity. So more than ever, the cultures of the First Peoples are important. Through their stories, their tragedies, their knowledge, they have survived the centuries and can teach us today better than anyone how to reconcile ourselves with Mother Earth. All over the world, we claim their message as guardians of Mother Earth, we are inspired by their philosophy, their art of living and the incredible richness of their cultures. Today is the time for reconciliation and dialogue between all peoples too long divided and separated.

When the Southern Condor will meet the Quetzal
du Center and the Aigle du Nord
It was said in particular that the day when the Condor of the South would meet the Eagle of the North, a great era of peace could be born.
In these troubled times where conflicts and environmental disasters are on the increase, the bearers of culture from the North of the Center and the South know that it is time to come together.
