the traditional farm

the territory

The exploitation and commodification of the territory has historically limited the traditional practices of Afro-Colombian communities originating from the undercover refuge palenques in the bush, to which the enslaved fugitives came during the colony. Since then, communities have resisted monopoly and exploitation. In circumstances of great fragility and fluctuation, resistance is transformed and updated, remains current, vital and hopeful.

The Afrocaucana Traditional Farm is a productive and reproductive agrarian form of family and community work. This form of production builds territoriality through relationships and ties of kinship and proximity and manifests an understanding of life in an ancestral dimension. Peasant production involves a vision of the world, a scheme of thought of diversity that seeks coherence with its values, social organization, political interests, a deep meaning of territorial cultural identity and the security of a place for life through affective relationships. with the environment.

The political visibility of the Afro-North Cauca peoples is based on the multiethnic and multicultural Constitution of 1991. In turn, Law 70 of 1993 constitutes one of the elements of roots and defense of the Territory since the activation of memories and traditions of their Africanness.

Although children's memories, like their life experiences, are short, they cannot be excluded from the social and political dynamics that go through their past, present and future. This project seeks to demonstrate the values of boys and girls in defense of their territory through artistic practices.
