The 100%% of the Profits of this cd will go directly to the Mentawai Project by Native Planet that is a non-governmental organization dedicated to the self-empowerment of indigenous peoples and the preservation of world ethnic cultures. Traditional groups are not only global role models for successful conservation and sustainable consumption of natural resources; they are also the guardians of our planet's remaining wilderness and biological diversity.
In the rainforests of Siberut off the coast of Sumatra, Indonesia, the Mentawai exist within a society and a world that is determined to assimilate and exploit them. Native Planet offers support by helping to build umas so the traditional shamans and their clans can return to their ancestral lands ensuring their cultures survival.
