Benki Piyanko on the Third Annual Ayahuasca Indigenous Conference

 

why is this project important?

There are many Ayahuasca conferences held throughout the world where the majority of panel speakers are not indigenous and focus on science, as opposed to the spiritual aspects of the medicine. 

It is of the utmost importance that the indigenous are able to meet and discuss all aspects pertaining to the use of this sacred medicine, including westerners use, legal aspects, and how to safeguard it as their culture. 

The different themes that will be discussed will be : protecting the rights of indigenous peoples’ use of this medicine; writing letters and demands to be sent to institutions that protect indigenous people; strengthening discussions for the medicine’s governance, and forming a strategic plan of actions to be executed in regards to safeguarding indigenous rights to practice their culture. All of this will be recorded on film and written so that the info discussed can be shared with the world. 

This conference is vital to the indigenous carriers of ayahuasca, who need help in organizing and having their voices on this matter heard. 

core discussion points

  • The right way to utilize Ayahuasca

  • Rules of conduct to consecrate this medicine

  • Exchange of ancestral indigenous knowledge off sacred plants

  • Re-education of indigenous leaders around plant medicines and their protection

  • Sharing the messages of indigenous people to the world

  • The use of Ayahuasca in the western world

How much does this project cost ? 

The entire project requires $30,000 USD which will go towards organizing and travel expenses for the indigenous, food and water during the event, and the written and video record of all discussions.
