Raymond Hermenet for Embera:
"Having met with Ms Niki Green and having the pleasure of speaking with her directly has led us, my wife and I, to a full understanding of Project PanaMama and its necessity to the health of our future generations.
Let it be known that my experience of over thirty years as a yoga teacher supports this needed project, but this is especially true of my wife and our extended family.
Irma Caisamo, my wife, is a gifted healer in the Caisamo Mengizama Guainora Clan of the Embera people stretching between Colombia and the Republic of Panama. She is an accomplished healer who understands fully and supports the project in whatever capacity that the future may hold.
In brief she and I will capacitate the Embera as to the benefits of homeopathic medicine. Will introduce the project to the proper traditional authorities ( since 2003 I have worked directly with the Head Chiefs, Regional Chiefs, and General Congress of the Embera and Wounaan Reservation in the Darien Province of the Republic of Panama).
Irma, in her role as a botanica or herbalist, will also share traditional Embera remedies pertaining to birthing amongst her people and other native groups involved with the project. We will also assist in choosing a group to work with in a pilot project."
