Cameron Diaz goes high into the Andes Mountains of Peru where young medicine man, Puma Singona, of the Quechua tribe, is keeping his people’s ancient knowledge and wisdom alive. When he was just six years old, under the guidance of his grandfather, Puma began his training as a traditional medicine man. By fifteen, he was traveling to international conferences to speak about Quechua traditions and culture. Today, at 27, he sits on his community’s council of elders, runs a cultural organization that focuses on teaching tradition to youth, and is internationally recognized for his powerful healing and teachings. Puma introduces Sol and Cameron to his community, takes them high into the mountains for a winter solstice ceremony, and shows them one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Machu Picchu.
