The principal responsibility of the Mamos
The principal responsibility of the Mamos, the traditional elders of the 4 tribes of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta - the Arhuacos, Kogis, Wiwas and Kankuamos - is to maintain the balance of nature on Earth for the benefit of all life.
The Black Line
"The Black Line" forms a virtual triangle around the base of the Sierra Nevada and denotes the boundary of the ancestral territories of these peoples. The Black Line is, in truth, a ring containing 354 sacred sites and it carries a magnetic current, deep inside the Mother Earth that specifically connects with every other sacred site on the planet. The Black Line has the very important function of communicating and transmitting to every other sacred site on the earth to maintain the balance of life.
The Mamos offer the highest forms of service to the planet by maintaining and restoring the balance through their connection to all the sacred sites within the Black Line territory, which they refer to as the ‘Heart of the World.’ They have have been fulfilling this service for millennia.
The Heart of the World
"The Heart of the World" is a mirror representation of the whole planet and as the Black Line connects with every sacred site, what occurs within the Black Line is being messaged out to create balance in the rest of the world.
A Sacred Site
"A Sacred Site" is a place in the Earth, a Sacred Office, where the energy lines and currents connect and store specific information to maintain the function and relationship of all life forms in harmony and balance, in alignment with the natural laws. The Mamos travel to these places of connection and spiritual power to maintain the Great Balance and ensure that the rivers, trees and all of nature is flourishing.
When a sacred site is damaged, the currents within the Earth Mother’s body cannot transmit the specific sacred energies and information to all of the trees, all of the animals, all of humanity, in a way to support all of life to stay in balance.
On August 6, 2018, Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos signed a decree that recognizes the ancestral territory of the 4 tribal communities of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, as defined by the sacred sites of the Black Line.
