Sabiduria a flor de piel: Taita Mariano (Wisdom on the skin series)

Taita Mariano (Taita is like dad but is used for elders with high prestige and wisdom), is one of the founders of the fight for the rights of the aboriginal people of the south of Colombia. Years of struggle have been unable to reduce his joy for the life, his love for the land and his commitment with his people.
