Intangible Heritage in Colombia in the midst of Armed Conflict and Unreached Peace

Resultado de la investigación: Capítulo del libro/informe/acta de congresoCapítulorevisión exhaustiva


After sixty years of armed conflict in Colombia, the wounds have left very deep marks within the representative social groups and their cultural manifestations. War impacted vulnerable populations, especially those rich in indigenous and black heritage. The chapter explores the case of the El Salado massacre in the re-gion of Montes de Maria, Colombia, in which between February 16 and 22, 2000, a group of paramilitaries executed 66 people, including men, women, and children while the victims were forced to play their traditional music or the killers played the instruments after each brutal murder or rape. The chapter discovers how inter-national and national legislation reached out late but finally recognised the brutali-ty of one group against another, and how from the cultural heritage a community strives to forget and to prepare its next generations for the future, based on recon-ciliation and revaluation of its intangible cultural values.
