Welcome to this site. I have called the site Smagnis after my Indian name Sma´gnis. I thought it is appropriate as this site is dedicated to sharing knowledge, sharing experiences and to learn new thoughts. Most important, this site is about our stewardship role for Mother Earth and the spirit of creating a secure and culturally rich future for the current generation and seven generations in the future.
