Kogi – An unusual name that’s origin is nothing short of ironic and quite frankly, unbelievable! Christina Hanson, Owner of Kogi Naturals.
And so the story is told:
Deep in the beautiful and natural Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in Columbia lives an Indigenous ethnic group known as the Kogi People. This civilization has continued since the Pre-Columbian era. The Kogi base their life on the belief in “Aluna” or “The Great Mother”, who they believe is the force behind nature. It is said that they understand our earth to be a living thing and humanity is seen as its children. The Kogi people believe that they support the balance and harmony of the creativity in the world and as such they are know as "The Keepers of the Earth".
