THE MEANING OF TREES

WORLD TREE NEWS

Mythology and shamanism

The return of the oldest method of habitat protection on Earth: to honour and respect a place or an area as “sacred ground” (= untouchable, taboo).
After prayers of the U'wa tribe in Colombia an entire oil field disappeared and 100 million US dollars of excavation spendings could not bring it back.
For the U'wa, an indigenous people in northeastern Colombia, oil is the blood of the Earth, and to extract it is equivalent to committing matricide.
