Colombia - 2012
Indigenous communities and territory come together as one, but the relationship implies a variety of visions and interpretations. From a traditional point of view, the territory is multidimensional: it considers not only the physical-geographical area or the political-administrative dimensions, but it also includes the shamanic, mythological and inter-ethnic aspects. These are some of the elements that TBI Colombia recovers in this publication. This booklet includes a series of maps that show the territories of the Yucuna and Matapí ethnic groups.
No se puede hablar de indígenas y de territorio por separado, aunque conforman una unidad indisoluble, es una relación que implica una cantidad de visiones e interpretaciones. Desde un punto de vista tradicional, el territorio es multidimensional: no se relaciona simplemente con el área físico-geográfica o político-administrativa, sino que responde a aspectos chamánicos, míticos y a sutiles relaciones interétnicas. Estos son algunos elementos que Tropenbos Internacional Colombia recupera en este documento. Esta publicacion incluye una serie de mapas que muestran el territorio Yucuna y Matapí desde una vision chamanistica.
