About

 

Hi! My name is Karina (my peeps call me Kari, and you can too). I grew up in Colombia, a country with nearly one hundred indigenous nations and the planet's highest rate of species diversity per area unit. Somewhere between that childhood and a 15-year career in the Environmental field, I realized that average citizens like you and me have a tremendous ability to create a better world. 

At Fly Tribes we think the most effective way to do this is to buy less conventional "stuff" and choose more indigenous-made products. Why?  Because you will reduce your ecological footprint and the pressure on existing natural resources while increasing your support for tribal communities, the guardians of the Earth. 

We are teaming up with indigenous artisans, social entrepreneurs, and organizations like the Environmental Heritage Foundation and the Patel College of Global Sustainability to introduce this new approach to conservation. Stand with nature, shop indigenous!
