Description + Story

The story of the Wayuu is a story of deep mythicism, violent rebellion, and economic injustice. Today, the relationship of the Wayuu to the rest of Colombia is one marked by exploitation and neglect. Women turn to their traditional crafts as one of the only ways to make ends meet. Each mochila takes about twenty days to make, by the hands of multiple generations of a singly family, and the stories of the Wayuu are woven into each mochila.
