Silvia Indigenous Market
Living colors and traditions of the Guambiano culture.
Silvia Indigenous Market | Colombia is a country of indigenous roots. Unfortunately, during colonial times, these indigenous tribes were forced out of their land and into slavery. Today some seek isolation from the first colonized territories. Colombia embodies a country that protects indigenous rights dedicated to independent safeguards where 80 different cultures still prevail. Together they constitute more than 3% of the population of Colombia. They 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 her.
