More on the Birdman of Ocolome

So this guy Rafael knows every bird on the Rio Fuerte, and continues to mutter “Common Black Hawk” and “Tiger Heron” and on and on as we float down away from the little village of Ocolome. The Ocolomes are a very small tribe that have barely survived. They live along the river near El Fuerte in the Copper Canyon area of Mexico.

When we pull up to the bank and walk toward the petro glyphs, Rafael begins to discuss the plants and their medicinal uses- as in this video. He shows us common plants along the trail that will help with sore throat, back pain, tooth ache, nervousness, etc….absolutely fascinating.
