The Zio Baim People, located for thousands of years on the banks of the Putumayo River, bases its vision of the world on the relationship between spirit and territory. Their life and relations – at every level and step – are guided by the sacred Yage plant, whose care and teaching is the responsibility of the Taitas elders of the Zio Baim people.
