Indigenous Market in Silvia Cauca
Living colors and traditions of the Guambiano culture.
Colombia is a country of indigenous roots. Some of these indigenous tribes were subdued during the colonial times and others seek for isolation from the first colonized territories. Today, Colombia embodies their rights dedicated to independent safeguards where 80 different cultures still prevail. Together they constitute more than 3% of the population of Colombia. All preserve thousand-year-old traditions and consider Mother Earth as sacred. For them the past, the present and the future would not be possible without it.

The MISAK inhabit an environment of unique nature, which forms the basis of their economy and wisdom as represented in the colors of their clothing. With their agricultural products, they enrich the traditional peasants market, turning it into an exotic and colorful bazaar.
