It is an honor to present the first edition of this Bulletin produced
as a joint effort of the participants who represented Latin America
in the "IV Healing our Spirit Worldwide Global Conference".
We have adopted the conference’s title as the Bulletin’s
name. As a quarterly publication, the main objective will be to
create a network in order to share experiences that contribute to
the well-being of the indigenous peoples of Abya Yala (name given
by the Kuna people of Panama to all the American Hemisphere), and
of the rest of the world. We believe that all of us share the same
spirit granted by our Pacha Mama, our Mother Earth.
Each edition of this Bulletin will be a shared responsibility of
a country or a group of countries. The persons who represented Panama
at the Conference edited this First Issue of the Bulletin. We hope
this initiative will contribute to the formation of a Unique, United
and Strong People.
With our affection,
Margarita Griffith and Yuri Bacorizo
