Ambachacke émbera chamí (The Mountain People Family)

  • Never, Hector and Luz Aleida, children of Enriqueta Borocuara, sister of Jairo Borocuara, they appear checking a computer that was given to them, the first computer they have at home. During 2020, the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, the children (approximately twelve) dropped out of school. In addition to not having devices such as a cell phone, computer or tablet and tools such as the internet, there were days when they went hungry. Given the pandemic, due to the lack of buyers, the women stopped selling their handicrafts on the streets. This situation put his economy in check: his only daily livelihood.

  • Without knowing it, that would be the last photograph he would take of Doña Enriqueta Ocampo with her grandchildren and nephews. At the time, at 72, kidney failure was ending his life. On January 11, 2022 that light finally went out. This photograph is a tribute to her, her life, her struggle and her legacy.

  • Jairo Borocuara and Eloysa Queragama do not have biological children, however, from a very young age they take care of Yeiner and Soraida, Jairo's nephews, despite the fact that they never initiated a legal process before the ICBF or the Family Commissioner, because for them that legal procedure It was unnecessary. Soraida died in April 2021, at the age of 16, in Pueblo Rico, Risaralda, a year after returning to her biological parents, after suffering a hemorrhage and not being able to be transferred to the hospital due to the distance between the places. These photos, intervened in a collage, were taken in 2018 and 2019 and it is one of the few memories that remain of her.

  • I remember that when I arrived in Bogotá I began to see many indigenous people begging on the bridges. I noticed the similarity of their physical features, especially the women, who usually wear brightly colored dresses and necklaces. I discovered that many of them were Embera, both Chamí and Katio. And in the midst of the apathy and disinterest shown by people passing by them, in the midst of the state abandonment that was evident, I wanted to get closer to the community. A colleague from the University Indigenous Council of Bogotá passed me the contact of a community leader and that is how I came to Eloyse, Jairo and his family. The day I visited her house, I had the camera ready. However, when I started listening to them, I knew that it was not the right time to start shuttering. After several visits and getting to know them better, shedding a bit of my status as a stranger, they allowed me to take these photographs.

  • Doris is an indigenous girl, belonging to the Embera Chamí community. She and her family arrived in Bogotá D.C, between 2009 and 2013, after being displaced from her place of origin in Pueblo Rico, Risaralda, due to the threats and armed violence of the ELN (National Liberation Army). This photo is born from a spontaneous moment, from a very common game for Doris. And she talks about the idea of inhabiting one place, but staying spiritually connected in another. The water represents the ancestral territory and the cement the city.

  • María Elvira waits patiently for the other women to be ready to dance an Embera dance. At that moment his gaze and the direction in which he fixed it gave me a lot of hope and moved me to think about how uncertain the future could be, but at the same time about the hope that lies behind it.

  • Eloisa paints Luz Aleida face with jagua, which is obtained from a tree that produces a fruit with which the color black can be created. Each plant that is painted on its skin, each animal, each element has a place in the cosmos and a reason for being.

  • Embera women say that in ancient times their ancestors used gold necklaces, earrings and chokers; however, after the Spanish conquest, the Spanish usurped the gold they had and they began to weave their handicrafts with other materials, such as beads. From left to right: Eloisa, Elena and María Elvira.

  • The Embera dance is deeply linked to the feminine world, that is, to the world of creation. This is not only a manifestation of the beautiful and the colorful, but also, within the framework of the Colombian armed conflict, it has been expressed as a symbolic act to forgive the armed actors who have harmed them.

  • In the photo: Jairo Borocuara. For the Embera Chamí, music and traditional song are deeply tied to their spiritual life; the sound elements occupy an essential place within its territory. According to their testimonies, through music and song memory is made.

  • The Embera Chamí woman paints her face with jagua and wears her best dresses and necklaces only on special occasions. This is a photo that has great value for me since it is the first time that Eloisa smiles naturally in a portrait, which reflects the nobility and strength of her being.

  • This was the last photograph I took of Jairo Borocuara, an Embera leader, the last day he stayed in Bogotá before being returned with his family to his ancestral territory. The green light that is reflected represents the mountain, its place of origin. Is the connection that exists with the territory fragmented with the displacement of the body or what happens eventually?
