Land of diversity par excellence, Colombia is the cradle of several indigenous communities which continue to perpetuate traditions dating back several millennia. Discover the Guambianos of Silvia who have survived the ages and upheavals and who are often the guardians of an exceptional nature. The number of Guambiano in Colombia is estimated at around 12,000 people. They speak Nasa Yuwe among themselves. The name of the Guambianos comes from the word "Guambia", meaning a traditional bag used by women to carry their weaving kit. Indeed, Guambianos women are known to excel in the art of weaving. The sale of their produce is the main source of income for the tribe. But the Guambianos are also famous for their agricultural work, following ancestral farming methods, but also for herding. Although the Guambiano people are quite reserved by nature, they are renowned for their kindness and their smile.
