Who are we? Quiénes somos? #223 November 2023
This is Jaime Justino Correa Jaramillo, known as Jimmy, pictured here with Kogi children in their village. He is a theatrical and sculptural artist, working with communities on projects to do with local culture and the environment. He is also a cultural ambassador and facilitator. He has been working together with the Kogi people for decades, supporting them in numerous ways - he is currently working on a project to construct a safe bridge for crucial access to their mountain home. He is a part of an association called La Semilla de la Sierra which helps Kogi and indigenous youth. He has travelled with the Elders before, and takes great care of their needs and enjoyment, to make their journey safe and successful. He is very much looking forward to facilitating their trip here to New Zealand and looks forward to the visit.
