WHERE WE WORK.
Preserving Kichwa Culture & Heritage
Sacha Wasi has made preserving the Kichwa culture and heritage a top priority through the documentation and recording of their spiritual and religious practices and rituals. The Kichwa have a rich tradition of shamanism, and their spiritual practices have been passed down orally from generation to generation. Recording and documenting these practices could help preserve their traditional knowledge and beliefs for future generations and ensure that their culture and heritage are not lost. This documentation could also serve as a resource for researchers and scholars interested in studying indigenous spiritual practices and traditions.
