This month’s Saturday Salon will discuss the concept of Sumak Kawsay. For centuries the indigenous peoples of the Andes have been living the concept of Sumak Kawsay, which loosely translates to “good living”. In this Saturday Salon lecture, you will learn how this concept has become an Ecuadorian legacy and how it’s being applied today.
Saturday, Feb. 19 at 10:30 am. Cost is $10. To reserve your seat, contact: [email protected]
