The Kogi: An ancient civilisation with an urgent message for the modern world

The Kogi are some of the last few surviving descendants of the Tairona, an ancient civilisation dating back to the pre-Columbian era, who escaped colonial persecution by retreating to the remote mountains of northern Colombia. Having kept themselves isolated and uncontactable for centuries, the Kogi have finally decided to speak to the outside world in order to pass on an urgent message and help us to repair our connection with Mother Earth before it is too late.

Read our new article about the Kogi people, their vital message, and how the Onaway Trust supports them through its long-term partnership with the Tairona Heritage Trust.
