35 indigenous communities are going to disappear.

It's really sad to meet with the reality of indigenous communities here in Colombia, of these mentioned communities, there are some that have less than 100 members, due to inner war here in Clombia; In the country 73 indigenous people have been murdered, the "Organización Nacional Indígena de Colombia" (Onic) states this communities have been affected more than the rest in the country, they are even considered communities that will eventually disappear.

Taking into account we have mentioned in previous articles, the artist Carlos Jacanamijoy, he was part of a campaign here in Colombia to stop violence against indiginous communities, Jorge Olave and Jacanamijoy made an sculpture of a pregnant indigineous woman in order to make visible the problematic we are mentioning in this article.
