Project Details


Indigenous community belonging to the Cubeo ethnic group of the great indigenous shelter of Vaupés. This community is made up of 35 families and is located one hour from the capital Mitú on the banks of the Vaupes river. This millenary river has allowed these communities, not only to feed themselves, but to have a deep connection with their territory and to be a point of reference for all their ordering. This community stands out for its interest in the manufacture of handicrafts, a tradition that has been maintained over the years. So much so that children and young people make small crafts and have begun to innovate in these elements, because for this community to maintain its cultural rites has become essential to affirm their identity as indigenous Amazonians.
