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. 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.
You will explore the ancestral traditions of a millenary culture where soil and water coexist as sacred elements of the Misak also known as Guambianos. 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 farmers market, turning it into an exotic and colorful experience.
Local food, fruits, beverages, desserts, flowers, arts, and textiles are part of this great indigenous market.
