Obituary Mama Jacinto Zarabata

10 April 2019

We are very sad to inform you that Mama Jacinto Zarabata died on Sunday, 7 April.  He was the great patriarch of the Sierra, the Jefe Mayor.  The whole Sierra, all its indigenous peoples, are in mourning,  He and his brothers, Mama Valencio and Mama Bernardo, organised and supervised the creation of the Organisaci√≥n Gonawindua Tairona to speak for the Mamas to the Colombian government, and the making of the television programme “From the Heart of the World: The Elder Brothers’ Warning” which brought the Kogi message to many millions around the world for the first time.  He was the guardian of a profound understanding of nature and the proper behaviour of mankind. 

He was believed to be 100 years old.

 “We need your help to fund a vital meeting with the Kogi Mamas in the Sierra”.

Thirty years ago, the Kogi ended their centuries of silence to warn that we were doing massive damage to the health of the world.  They took the risk of exposure to us, the civilization that had destroyed so many other indigenous societies, because disaster was coming.  “Open your eyes!”

Wherever we conquer, wherever we settle, we plunder.  That was how they saw the “younger brother”.  The Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta was, they said, the final indigenous stronghold, and it was being invaded.  This final degradation of the world must be stopped, and plunder halted.  Otherwise, if the stronghold falls, if the conquest begun by Columbus is allowed to be completed, the earth dies.   “We all know what is happening.  Open your eyes”

In their own words

It is not possible to repair the damage the Younger brothers have done to sacred sites.  Now we see rivers drying out, avalanches, land slips, drought, unfamiliar weather and all this is being brought about by Younger Brothers.

Support Us

The Kogi message is important for us all.   They consider themselves to be the guardians of the earth and are worried by our attempts to destroy it.  They want their voice and knowledge to be heard around the world and for us to take action to protect the planet that we all share.  The Kogi need your help to do this.
