Born in the indigenous Kogi village in Domingueka in Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in Colombia, she‘s been chosen by the elders to study our western worlds and become a defender of her people and a protector of mother earth. After a talk at the Paua conference in Paris, many people requested that it would be a gift for the world if Ana Maria had the chance to learn English to be able to reach a wider audience.
As Haté Luciano, one of the Kogi elders said at the conference very wisely: „The tools of communications are still very limited considering the fact that we‘re sitting here with translators.“ We‘re collecting funds for Ana Maria so she has the support to properly study English.

Lucas lived with the indigenous Kogi people in Colombia and is the author of two books.
