El Farallon National Monument preservation project ties in with the work we are doing with the Maleku Indian tribe because of the petroglyphic images displayed on the high bluff alongside the river within the Lopez brothers farm where the national monument is contained.
Please see the accompanying photo of a petroglyph outside the old “rancho” where the Maleku Tribal Council convene. This same spiral image is seen many times on the bluff at El Farallon.
The indigenous people from this northern area of Costa Rica were Chibchan. They traveled long distances on foot trading with other tribes, throughout Central America and Mexico. I believe that the El Farallon site was a stop along the road for the Maleku, just one tribe of the Chibchan people from so long ago.
By supporting this project you will preserve 48 hectares (110+ acres) of tropical dry forest and help the Lopez family maintain the national monument’s access so that more people can be inspired by the indigenous wisdom. We only have $1500 left to see this project funded. LET’S GET PLANTING!
