Often people ask me why I chose the name “Indigenous Spirits”. The indigenous that were living on this land way before the spaniards arrived, believed in the force of nature. The Indigenous from America used to worship the sun, the thunder, the ocean and more elements from the Mother Earth. Their religion is well known as “The spirits” because they believe in the Great Spirit, a superior force. Across America the indigenous had their own gods, all of them based on nature. The Incas major god was “Inti” ( Sun), the Aztecs had a Huitzilopochtli ( Sun) and the Mayans had a Quetzalcoatl (Wind). I am a blend of cultures and races. Part of my roots come from and Ecuadorian indigenous people and I am proud of having a very strong blood running through my veins. Having those roots explain my deep connection with nature and its inner force.
I would love that the jewelry and items we create, could connect the people who adquiere them, to the nature and its inner force.
