KROYWARA is agriculture’s preparation process. A family ritual: re-burning wood piles of insufficiently burned tree trunks and branches… ‘just CELEBRATING’ the odor of a chemical practice. This game, of limited damage and short-term effects, is a dance of a culture and nature. It makes my ego aware and I hear the earth singing.
The idea I kroywara I – when I walk with you, you walk with I – is about respect. It promotes serving each other as far as we can. This concept, that also demonstrates participation, promotes the cooperation of opposites. It can be considered such as the Maya say ‘Inlakech: you are a another me and I am another you’.
Such as the duality of life, KROYWARA is the other side of violence: strength. A dialectical approach will most definitely support us to thrive.
