Eric JULIEN, founder of Tchendukua, is a geographer and business consultant. In 1985, while traveling through the high valleys of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta (Colombia), he was saved from a pulmonary edema by the Kogi Indians (Kagabas).
To thank them, and to try to contribute to their survival, he founded the association Tchendukua – Ici et Ailleurs. An association that brings together those who wish to favour a way of life based on the search for harmony and respect for others.
He is the author of many books including “The path of nine worlds”, “Kogis, the message of the last men” (Albin Michel), “The Kogi Indians, the memory of the possible” (Actes Sud).
