The Indigenous People of Costa Rica

The feature image at top is the Shaman in Watsi Bribri Village. I’m planning to do an extensive article here soon including others besides the Bribri which I’ve had the most experience with! In the meantime, check out my photos & Blog Posts plus my Other Links. Costa Rica never had a thriving indigenous culture such as the empires of the Mayan, Aztec or Inka people. The native people were culturally influenced by Mesoamerican tribes from Central America and cultures from northern South America (mostly today’s Colombia).

Wow! I had no idea I had done so many posts on the indigenous people! 🙂

“Through consciousness, our minds have the power to change our planet and ourselves. It is time we heed the wisdom of the ancient indigenous people and channel our consciousness and spirit to tend the garden and not destroy it.”
