Arakiruma Bi-rúa. Heartfelt thanks to the land of deer: Five young people from the ancestral territory of San Lorenzo, in Riosucio, Caldas narrate, from their daily life, their experiences, feelings and knowledge about the territory.

Dance, music, weaving, medicine and politics have been the means by which young people have been able to empower themselves and lead community processes and resist contextual dynamics that have affected their indigenous identity and territorial sovereignty.

The meeting and dialogue have allowed these young people to walk a collective process to strengthen the social fabric of their communities and inspire new generations to take ownership of the organizational and identity processes of the territory.
