Chaski Fest Celebrates Ancestral Wisdom in Danbury
On July 30, the Danbury Green on Ives Street will host Chaski Fest from noon to 8pm. Chaski is the Quechua (native Andean language) word for messenger. Traditionally, chaskis were trained runners who would deliver important messages throughout the numerous Andean empires. Today Chaski Fests are worldwide gatherings of conscious artists and activists who carry and spread the message of preserving the earth’s resources and ancestral wisdom.
Admission is free for the day of live music, dance, poetry, yoga and environmental activism. It is an opportunity to have fun and become a part of a united group of messengers for the protection of Mother Earth. The event is presented by the World Conscious Pact Northeast, a regional chapter of an international network of conscious artists and activists united for mother earth. The five objectives of the World Conscious Pact are to protect animals, protect humanity, protect nature, promote a conscious consumer culture, and to help preserve the ancestral wisdom of indigenous cultures around the world.
