Sharing indigenous traditions through theater and radio

SHARING INDIGENOUS TRADITIONS THROUGH THEATER AND RADIO
Indigenous children from communities belonging to the council of San Andrés de Sotavento have dedicated these months to studying the legends and traditions of their Zenu people with a purpose: to make street theater plays or comparsas based on them to show the great cultural wealth that possess their indigenous communities and how these legends and traditions have become the bases or foundations of their ethnic identity.
Likewise, children have been carrying out radio programs on "Positiva Estéreo" and other school and indigenous radio stations in the region about their traditions, their history and their rights as communities and as a child population.
Within the rights of children, radio programs have emphasized the right to love and protect their bodies from adult abuse; to report these abuses when they occur. Likewise, children have understood that they have the right to be part of a family, of a community, that they cannot be discriminated against because of their ethnic origin and that they, like the other children in Colombia, have the right to happiness.
