Women of the Kogui indigenous community in Colombia do not chew coca leaves. Coca is a plant medicine that is used to awaken your mind, connects you to deeper levels of knowledge and spiritually connects you with yourself, with others and with nature. As women are connected with Mother Earth and water, the origins of every natural element, they possess a certain knowledge men don’t have. To obtain this certain knowledge, men have to chew coca leaves. And women don’t.
That is some acknowledgement for female knowledge, right?
