“Roots are those who seek mother earth freedom and overthrow the false and deceitful country, taking us out the cities by assault and load!”


Two years ago was demonstrated by all Colombia indigenous community the importance to work together and fight for the rights. Those communities are represented by the MINGA (Minka in quechua language) that is an traditional community who has a social purpose that has been established in Latin America from pre-Columbian times, today it takes place in countries like Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia and Chile.
MINGA meaning derivates of knowledge that indigenous have developed through years; working by a common purpose is faster and better.

MINGA importance is an attitudinal value of the event, since before the call of the leaders, the vast majority of people came to call, be mobilized and organized in such a way that the physical effort MINGA represented were became a true celebration of life, love, a real party and the emphasis is on feelings and values
​​that relate to the organization and execution of the MINGA:
Leadership: because the call to the need to run a "MINGA" was done by the reference to the people.
Solidarity because people went to the MINGA by the feeling of helping others, thinking that by intervening in it, he was favoring it, for the common good that she represented.
Fellowship: for to the difficulties generated by the effort of performing a task assigned to an individual in a given time without being able to achieve the expected result, other people came to him, to share the effort and time finish the job.
Teamwork: it banishes individualism, because when it was gigantic works, as generally were those planned with Ming, one person could not run, but working together, they performed with great taste and adequate effort.
Sharing: for how these events were usually lasts a day or more of sustained effort, had to carry food familiar to the Ming and the right time, make it available to others, organizing a common table for all.
Sense of collaboration: because if leaders working committees organized on different fronts, either by providing the technical direction of work, "handing out" some soda to quench the thirst, the MINGA participants eagerly fulfilled their obligations and goodwill.

Satisfaction for the common good: for the work done through the MINGA, favored at all, as it turned into beneficiaries of these works, which undoubtedly raised the quality of life of residents.

High self-esteem: for a job well done, done with joy and positive outcomes for users, raising the status of loving ourselves and the rest of congeners.
Love the flavors: because the effort to deliver in a MINGA is manifesting the love for the land, to whom it has been enlarged with a little effort that added to the others, is transformed into a beautiful reality of progress.

Colombian MINGA has extended the concept to a political level, at it seeks the vindication of indigenous rights, inviting to reporting and reflection about their deplorable situation, also it has appealed to all indigenous communities and popular character in order to establish a social process in all regions who are willing to undertake a legislative construction with equal rights for everyone, focusing in nature perspective.
