Amazon Region: Interculturality

The Inga community, descendants of the Incas, has lived in Putumayo for decades as an ethnic group that centres its worldview around traditional medicine and the land. They are great merchants and artisans. Annually they celebrate their ancestral carnival called Kalusturrinda, Atun Puncha or Forgiveness Day, which represents the beginning of the new year for the Ingas and the possibility of reconciling all the mistakes of the past while correcting them over the merriment of the party. The value of this celebration also resides in its ancient lineage and tradition that keeps being revitalized with each iteration.
