Today one of the most amazing, kind and beautiful human beings in the world has passed away.
A year ago I had the honor to met him and drink of that wisdom that our Ancestral elders share in each word and action.
José Chávez was an artist, a master artisan of the Nasa's traditional hat, an amazing father and grandpa. To his family my condolences, we have lost a big piece of our tradition today and I'm not only talking about the Nasa people, or his family, I'm talking about the world.
