"In the mid 1990’s Chris Kilham showed up at a trade show with a Tahitian prince, a South Pacific chief, a Brazilian shaman, and several friends from the US. Under the name “The New Tribe,” the group attended the trade show, showed up at parties, and generally made a scene. People seemed to enjoy the idea, and we generated a lot of friendly conversation.

"Fast forward to the present, when Zoe Helene took the "New Tribe" idea and decided to create a section on this web site for the people and organizations that fit well with Medicine Hunter – New Tribe. In this section you will find friends, associates, people we admire, people with whom we work, people who are thought leaders, people who are supporters.

"From herbalists to shamans, researchers, videographers, herbal traders, scholars, yogis, entrepreneurs and other thought leaders, the members of the New Tribe span a very broad range of interests, all somehow connected to healthy lifestyle and sustainability. This is an ever-evolving list. If you or someone you know are not on this list but should be, either we are working on it or we’d appreciate hearing from you. It may well be that your profile exists but we need more information from you, or we need you to formally approve it..." [1]
