About the Eagle Quetzal Condor: A Global Convergence of Wisdom Keepers and Planetary Advocates
Indigenous Elders from North, Central, and South America united with Wisdom Keepers from around the world for a historic event at the Eagle Quetzal Condor gathering in Sedona, Arizona – April 17th -19th, 2015 for presentations, music and ceremonies.
Because we are facing a global ecological crisis, the Indigenous wisdom and knowledge of the Natural World is needed now more than ever. Re-establishing a harmonious relationship to the Earth is the only way humanity can move into the future in a sustainable way. Indigenous cultures throughout the Americas –– and the world –– have maintained a reciprocal relationship with the Earth, have protected the sacred sites and ancestral trade routes, and are now sharing that wisdom with the modern world in preparation for a new planetary era; an era where modern technology and ancestral wisdom are synthesized to create a thriving world for the entire Earth Community.
Over 50 Indigenous Elders attended the gathering and these Elders and global Wisdom Keepers offered formal presentations: Grandmother Margarita Nuñez Garcia (Jalisco, Mexico), Cristobal Cojti Gacia (Mayan Elder, Guatemala), Juan Garbriel (Peruvian Elder), Uqualla (Havasupi Tribe), Ruben Saufkie (Hopi Tribe), Grandmother Laura Espinoza Cuadras (Mexicali, Baja Mx), Carl Johan Calleman, PhD (Scholar and Author), Sensei Rendo Sugimoto (Japanese Elder), Alokananda (Tribal Alliance), and more…
This conference focused on environmental awareness in alignment with Earth Day. Two environmental films that address solutions to climate change were shown, Cowspiracy and The Future of Energy. The two films compliment each other and together cover the two largest areas of society that need to be transformed in order to solve the climate crisis; animal agriculture and energy consumption.
Lively musical performances were offered by Bhushan Stone (Alaskan folk music) and Ryan Whitewolf (Australia), The Suns of the Earth –– “Suns of the Earth are singing the song of our times and within their music lives the Mythos of a global transformational movement.” –– and I AM Life (and to bring all the people together to celebrate life.
