Kushi Waira Cañari Community, ancestral medicinal plants

Last minute specials available.

Good morning everyone. The early bird gets the worm. Have a great weekend.
Kushi Waira Cañari Community Tarqui Azuay.

Hope you can join us this Wednesday, September 30th, 8:30 AM to aprox 4 PM. Here are some pictures of our last visit this Feb. 2020 just before the World Pandemic.

Come with us and explore, discover and learn.

Imagine walking through a forest learning, seeing and touching the medicinal plants that the Cañari (Kañari) healers have used for centuries to treat their people. Let’s meet Taita Alfonso and his family as they share their Ancestral knowledge with us opening the doors of their community and home.

Want to learn more about the indigenous peoples of the area? Do you enjoy "hands-on" experiences over just reading about it?

Our Cultural and Tourism Programs allow you to take home something that will last a lifetime. Memories.

We will have numerous activities, like a small breakfast once we arrive, small talk about Kushi Wayra, amazing walk to explore , discover and learn. Also the music with wind instruments. On one of the sacred mountains where we will be walking to as we arrive there will be a cleansing and rejuvenating ceremony.

Plus for those who like, we will be having a Pampa-Mesa with the food served like our Ancestors in indigenous communities of the Ecuadorian highlands, a pampa mesa is a communal meal of food laid directly on a cloth spread on the ground. The meal is seen as an act of social solidarity; it also has mythological connotations we are able to connect with our Pachamama, or optional box-lunch.

We will be following bio-standard protocols established by the Cuenca Emergency Committee. Group size will be limited.
