We hear from the Wauja every day now via Skype, Facebook and email. They are very excited that we are coming next week.
The Wauja are very grateful that each of you has pledged something, so even though the Kickstarter campaign probably will not reach the $10,000 goal, they would like us to send you the gifts you were promised. Like many people who are not beholden to a consumer economy, they care more for maintaining relationships than amassing greater wealth than their neighbors. You are now part of their extended community, and the goodwill you have shown will be returned in both tangible and intangible ways.
If you want to follow the project as it unfolds, please check in with us starting January 9th at returnofthecapturedspirits.com
If you want to be on our project listserv, write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to the Kickstarter community and each of our donors for helping to publicize the Wauja and their historic project. Best of luck to each of you as you make the world a better place in your part of the planet.
Phil, Emi and the Return of the Captured Spirits Team
