La Toma

In the mountains of northern Cauca, a community of ancestral traditions resists and sets an example of sustainable economy, belonging and survival, through the trade they know how to practice since they were in their mothers' wombs: mining. Preserving the ancestral gold mining traditions, they also preserve their territory, their culture and ensure a promising future for future generations. Owners of a history full of difficulties that goes back to the colony, the inhabitants of La Toma, a community in the municipality of Suárez, are living testimony of the scope of identity, the sense of belonging and social cohesion as weapons to defend their territory of large-scale technical mining that is making its way in the country.
