Introduction

The name Pitaguarí refers to places in the high mountains, visible from the sea, which are territorial markers of the ancestors. From these places come medicinal plants, the raw material for plaitwork, adornments and festival attire, the stories of sacred beings and the memory of the times of slavery and freedom of the “people of the forests”.
