Indigenous people all over the world still retain cultural traditions in their way of daily living, displaying ancient wisdom that we can learn from in modern times, as we see in these two inspirational films, “Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino” and “Pocahontas II: Journey to A New World.” The 2013 documentary “Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino” was written, directed, and produced by Paqo Jeffrey Wium. A Western-born professional in multimedia production, Paqo Jeffrey found a deep resonance with the maestros of the Andean Holy Mountain Tradition, one of the few remaining unbroken wisdom lineages on our planet. Andean Paqos are regarded as masters of the “Living Energy” and practitioners of celestially-integrated ways of life. The ancient lineage embodies animistic consciousness, acknowledging that all natural things in the world have a spiritual essence and conscious life force. Throughout this unprecedented documentary are the beautiful and powerful prayers that the wise Andean Paqos have shared with the world, helping people remember their origins and choose Truth over power, as well as showing us an eco-spiritual way of living. “We appeal to every soul in the universe to follow their inclination towards an honest and loving lifepath. …And with tenderness and humility, in every step we take and task we accomplish, help us recognize and know all of Your creation as we learn to live more harmoniously within You. Watch over us, Eternal One.” ― Paqo Adolfo Our second movie is “Pocahontas II: Journey to A New World.” Released in 1998, it is a sequel to the beloved 1995 Disney film “Pocahontas.” Loosely based on actual historical people and events, “Pocahontas II: Journey to A New World” follows Pocahontas, the daughter of Chief Powhatan in Tsenacommacah. Together with Captain John Smith from London, UK, she has helped drive away Governor Ratcliffe. “Long ago, I told you to listen with your heart. It is time to listen to your heart. (But the spirits around me…) Can help. But only the spirit within can guide you. Listen to the spirit within.”
