"Twenty years from now you will be more dissappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
TRIBES AND CULTURES
There are an estimated 86 indigenous tribes in Colombia. There are 12 linguistic families (Chibcha, Arhuaca, Caribe, Quechua, Tupí, Chocó, Guahibo, Sáliba, Macú, Huitoto, Bora y Tucano), 10 isolated languages (andoque, awá- cuaiquer, cofán, guambiano, kamentsá, páez, ticuna, tinigua, yagua and yaruro) and 2 creole languages of African origin.
Colombia is a melting pot of ethnic, linguistic and cultural diversity. Engaging with its people and learning about their believes and their relationship with nature is a way of opening our minds to other visions of the world.
Naturalia organises cultural encounters with different communities and tribes so you can engage in enriching conversations and take part in rituals and handcrafts making.
