Thank you for your continued support for Altai Mir University.

The International Altai Expedition duing the summer of 2011 was a great success in opening people's awareness about the amazing global resource that Altai offers. Although the expedition is now completed, the work of Altai Mir University to protect Altai continues.

In particular, despite lack of any legal authorization, Gazprom continues to desecrate the sacred Ukok Plateau in preparation for an awesomely destructive gas pipeline directly through the UNESCO World Heritage Site there. If you would like to help the local Altai people to protect their sacred lands, please donate to 2002 Prevent desecration of pristine Altai habitats.

Then, you will continue to receive updates on our work in Altai.

I am pleased to inform you that, with your help, sufficient funding was raised to make the expedition as planned. Travel for Dineh wisdom-keeper Patricia Anne Davis was fully provided, and partial sponsorship was provided for others.

We trekked to Mt. Belukha, traveled by horseback across the sacred Ukok Plateau, and the finale was to open a cosmic energy cache for the planet. We also met with a group of talented young traditional thoat-singers, and continue our sponsorship effort for them and for other traditional livelihoods in the Altai Republic, to which donations can be made through Revive Altai cultural/environmental sustainability (#3893)

Thank you for your support!

Patricia Anne Davis has dedicated her life to awakening humanity. Now, she is called to bring together East and West by sharing her ancient wisdom with the indigenous Altai people, as part of the extraordinary International Altai Expedition.

We've raised the funds for her travel costs in Siberia. All we need now for Patricia Davis to join the expedition is $1500 airfare. Can you help out?
