Every August 1st, Indigenous people in South America pay tribute to Pachamama (World Mother). To that aim, Indigenous people in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador, and Peru celebrate Pachamama Day with different ceremonies and rituals to honor Mother Earth. At the Pachamama Raymi (feast), people develop a strong bond with Nature and perform a ritual to return to Mother Earth what she has offered to them. The water, the earth, the sun, and the moon are deeply connected to Pachamama and this has inspired organizations to advocate and educate people on the importance of natural balance to sustain life. Photo credit: EFE
