the mission of 'Sendero de Vida'

'la defensa Pachamama'
Organizing Indigenous projects which is determined by pueblo consensus starts the work process. That's what we did in the Amazon. Eat, play, dance, sing in Indigenous comunidades is a 'minga'. Translated: 'a work day' WE all work together & that's normal with community. Man or beast, we eat. Drink lots of chi-cha. Noone gets paid!
We are not here to tell anyone 'how to live' or 'what to do'. We listen, get resources & materials. Do work! That is 'our' role? Fogata films follows when necessary, leads appropriately.
The pedantic Christian paradigm robbed culture, terrorized sacred lands & welcomed industrialists. KNOW that paradigm? Bankers in a different building. Idols: cross or cash.
By accident & spirit focus, two travelers found sanctuary & earth connection. We discovered a legitimate place to raise our son peacefully without the false 'god of technology'. And, the death of consumerism? The art choices we've made created a 'doc film' but more broadly, we were gifted a lifestyle in South America with Indigenous comunidades.

Crista Marie Haagensen   Obituary page
11/23/70 ---- 4/7/19 R.I.P.
Crista was the best cousin. A true friend! Legit adventurer. Athlete! Hiked harder than anyone! So many classics: Dead shows, Oregon Country Fair, powder days in the mountain west. Christmas, Thanksgiving at Grandma and Grandpa's in Idaho.
Integral, proud integrity family decorum moments ornamented our lives.
Her loss stunned me. I felt so optimistic she'd recover? My time with her in PDX(last 3 years) was great for all discussions. Inter-connected, spiritual story telling of our weird & wild adventures. Places valueable to our generation & many ideals died on our watch, falling into the dust. At one time we had confidence from the post '60's values', then watched the complete sell out of BM & other temporary materialistic classist events. We witnessed the end of the hippy dream. The consumption of our loved mountain towns--bought, sold, developed for the rich. We were in the turning of all that change. Together always! I WILL MISS HER DEARLY! 2019 can bite my ass so far...
