A Conversation with Taita Crispin Chindoy and Xochi Bucuru Botache. Moderated and Translated by Dr. Joe Tafur

Wednesday, June 30th from 12-1:30pm PST


The variety of ancestral plant medicine in Colombia is very diverse. Among the sacred plants Yagé is one of the most widely used plants for the treatment of physical and spiritual diseases and disorders. This event will explore the tradition, history and knowledge of this medicine and the benefits and implications of its ceremonial and therapeutic use. This event will feature Taita Crispin Chindoy, native doctor, healer and anthropologist from the Kamentsa ethnic group of Alto Putumayo, as well as Xochi Bucuru, native doctor, health educator and communicator, dedicated to work with ethnic groups native to Colombia and South America. Through traditional knowledge and anthropology, we will share the importance of this sacred plant and traditions for the native people, and how its misuses have caused degraded images of these traditions. This presentation will merge traditional anthropological language with the vision of medicine, where the true doctors and connoisseurs of this millenary science are promoted and valued.

Cultural Tras la Huella (CTH) is a nonprofit organization based in Colombia, that protects, shares and documents traditional knowledge, cultural and artistic, in support of personal and social development.

This talk will be recorded and immediately available for rewatch for all attendees.
