Association for Nature Culture and Future : Ebando
based in GABON – CENTRAL AFRICA

Roots, Masks and Visions

Non-Governmental Organisation which aims to give broader access to the fundamental tangible and intangible cultural heritage found in various regions of Central Africa (including forest habitats, savannas, rivers, lakes and lagoons).

The organisation seeks to encourage the transmission of traditional Knowledge and practices including philosophy and oral traditions, art and crafts; and the healing skills of the Bantu and Pygmy peoples from the Ogooué basin region of Gabon.

Gabon's rich artistic heritage has provided a major influence for famous modern artists such as Braque, Derain, Picasso, Brancusi and Giacometti.

What we mainly do is :

Initiation into Bwiti: (Missoko Gondé Dipuma) or Rites including usage of Sacred Wood IBOGA(Disumba).

ECOTOURISM - Guided forest walks - Discover the marvels of this profound country through specialist walks for tourists. Themes include Ethnobotany, Insects, Healing, Ecology and Mysticism.

ON Going to meet the different INDIGENEOUS PEOPLES: BAKA(Bibayak). BaBONGO. BaKOYA.
 
Ancient practices-including knowledge of plants, rituals and healing.

ANCE has at its roots the desire to help fight against poverty and prejudice, through promoting traditional activities and inter-cultural communication.

The organization is innovative through its socio-cultural approach
