Revitalizing the original cultures

By: Neylin Calderón

With a waste of culture from the Andean worldview and spirituality of the indigenous, Afro-descendant and mixed-race peoples of Latin America, the celebration of the 25th birthday of the Intercultural Community University, URACCAN, began.

Representatives from various national and international universities, state institutions, regional government, guests from different countries and the two Autonomous Regions of Nicaragua and the university community of URACCAN participated in the central event.

Spirituality from the Andean worldview

To open, Ecuador's largest kichwa, Luis Enrique Cachiguango Cachiguango, performed the spiritual ceremony, forming a circle with representative elements such as fire, water, earth and food, as a way to reflect on the path traveled in these 25 years of URACCAN, "Just as Mother Rain bathes our fields to allow us to sow, we too will put water so that URACCAN continues to sow life , because URACCAN is sowing wisdom, not just science," he said.

Concluding, Cachiguango thanked the "Great Mother Spirit and the Great Father Spirit", for sharing life, to allow us human beings to love from within being, "May all these brothers and sisters who are present in this world have this value, this wisdom of creating life and letting ourselves be created by life," he concluded.
