Don Cesario

Don Cesario, is a 104 years old Siekopai (Secoya) elder in the Ecuadorian Amazon on the Peruvian border. He was said to be strict but also big-hearted and jolly. He was famous throughout the area for both his strong pots of yage and his eccentric fashions, which included feathered crowns. He also layered Mardi Gras beads over bright tunics and wore a baseball hat declaring yo soy el mejor (“I am the best”).
