WE here at Yumwija hope you had a joyful summer like we experienced here at Yumwija. The update will be short, there is so much going on, we just wanted to drop a word or two to keep everybody informed.
As many of you know the summer events experience was exciting and joyful. We all experienced the power of our Nature, to rejuvenate our blood with the Earth. People still have time to rejuvenate their blood before the 2014 summer season is complete. Yumwija will close on Nov 1st, and reopen May 22nd 2015.If you miss the experience make sure you catch it next year. Some of the family members have suggested we combine some projects with the events ,so the family can stay together longer, however all indigenous family can stay as long as they choose during the summer season here at Yumwija, bring a tent or stay in one of ours, it all good.!!!!!To view our summer pictorial go to our channel: FIAAH@ YUMWIJA.

Most of our people feel trapped and are experiencing great personal and collective despair; and are being forced to Look and search for what is real about life. They are realizing they lack knowledge about life ( traditional knowledge) to use toward consciously helping themselves work with the Life blood that keeps their life. The knowledge F.I.A.A.H offers about the truth of what is real about life will be the life line we share with our people. It is Our Time… It is time to let go of information that does not empower us. Knowledge is power, information without knowledge keeps one powerless… supporting F.I.A.A.H. helps us Help you!
Those who use knowledge will be the ones to lead those who are ready to get out of the burning building back to life.. With knowledge we don’t need others to give us a way to live on our Earth we can make our own jobs helping our people. If you are interested we have many ways to help you get started.
