Program description

The Wayúu ethnic group is considered to be the most representative of Colombian indigenous culture. It is a group almost entirely located in the northern state of La Guajira in the town of Uribia, which is recognized as the indigenous capital of Colombia. The social nature of the Wayúus allows the “Arijunas” – the outsiders in Wayuú language – to know their traditions, cultural expressions, and social life. On this tour we will visit a Wayuú community in their home in the heart of the desert. There you will have the amazing opportunity to interact with a rich culture, very different in their habits and customs from that of Colombians. The Wayuú communities practice a set of principles, rituals, and procedures based on the fundamental concept of repair and compensation. The fundamental rules serve as a way to settle disputes between family members. This system (called the normative system) requires a pütchipü’üi (leader) who will be the neutral party in the conflict and therefore examine the situation, and later give a solution to the problem trying to always act with diplomacy, caution and clarity.
