The other night we watched this amazing documentary about a pre-Spanish era Columbian tribe who have a culture completely alien to what we are used to. These amazingly sensitive individuals have a very defined culture that keeps itself away from the craziness of the rest of the world. The people of this tribe call themselves the Elder Brother’s and they call all the rest of us Younger Brother. They lament over our foolishness, greed, speed and our wars, but they also are understanding. This documentary was made in the 80’s but it seems that the Kogi, as they call themselves, are still managing to survive and keep brining their message to the world.
