The pursuit of growth and development is alien to the Wayúu

The pursuit of growth and development is alien to the Wayúu

‘The pursuit of growth and development is alien to the Wayúu, as is the idea of amassing material wealth in excess of one’s needs. Their sense of time is not linear and their philosophy rests on the principle of Sumak Kawsay (“the good life”). Sumak Kawsay encompasses the material, social and spiritual well-being of every member of the community – but not at the expense of other communities, nor through the exploitation and depletion of natural resources. At the core of this worldview is the idea that all living things are interconnected and exist in an endless cycle of continuous renewal.’ – Culture of the Wayuu, The Good Life Film
