Of Colombian and German heritage, Falk Parra Witte is an Anthropologist with a PhD from the University of Cambridge, based on long-term fieldwork on the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. His research seeks to enhance understanding of Kogi ecology by explaining and contextualising it as a complex way of being rooted in knowledge and framed by cosmological principles that organise life. Falk hopes that improved communication between Indigenous and Western knowledge can foment environmentalist collaborations, and better ecological dispositions generally.

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.
