Jairzagua Furativa Gagheta is the name given by her grandmothers of the Muisca tradition and means ‘black jaguar woman of the magic and the mystery of the hidden ancestral medicine’.
She is a medicine woman, daughter of Mother Earth, carrier of the ancestral lineage of the feminine divinity and follower of the Yage and traditional sacred plants. She is a weaver of dreams and a bridge between the worlds, weaving life day by day.
Jairzagua is an abuela (grandmother) herself now. While she is part of the Inga community in Colombia, she is also strongly influenced by the Siona tribes and the Aruaca tradition of the Sierra Nevada in Santa Marta and the communities in the Amazon of Colombia.
