More About Don Oscar:

Yachak (shaman) Don Oscar Santillan – KuriCharik (gold or sun in the heart) is a 7th generation sound healer, community leader, and teacher of traditional Andean wisdom from the Otavalo Kichwa Nation in Ecuador. An active member of indigenous organizations, he educates people about culture as well as sustainable development through Fair Trade practices and micro-financing. A Kichwa speaker with a strong connection to the natural world, he has made many radio appearances to spread ancient Andean wisdom and culture. Along with his family, he has created the Pakarinka Sisari, or Center for Ancestral Wisdom, displaying sacred musical instruments, pre-Colombian bowls, and symbolic clay hands for guidance and protection. With the majestic mountain, Imbabura as the backdrop, the center is a place to learn about ancient Andean ways and connect with Mother Nature. He has appeared in two films directed by Iris Brooks and Jon H. Davis. In Languages Lost and Found, he speaks his native tongue and plays a 300-year old condor feather flute and for the new, interactive DVD, Awakening Languages: A Personal Exploration, Sharing, and Questioning.
