Originality, functionality, beauty... Aboriginal crafts portray ancestral experience and keen observation in each design.
Unfortunately, most indigenous cultures are disappearing. This has resulted from displacement and infiltration of their communities by modern civilization, which dissuades young Aborigines from following in the traditional, artisanship centered, way of life.
As as result of displacement from their native habitat, Aborigine artisans of present-day Colombia, South America are forced to participate in the national economy. They have only one income source, the sale of their unique creations. Consistent with Colombia's plan of economic growth and elimination of rebel faction strongholds in rural, poverty stricken areas, Aboriginal Arts, LLC provides legitimate, gainful opportunities for those who would otherwise be unemployed and vulnerable.
We are a Christian company devoted to assisting Aborigines of Latin America with sustaining artisanship as a way of life.
