Karrustulinda: a reflexive approach to the carnival of forgiveness

James León Parra-Monsalve, Jonnathan Blake Pinto Caviedes

Abstract


As usual, every year, during the days before Ash Wednesday, the Karrustulinda is celebrated. This carnival integrates the indigenous people of Putumayo (Colombia) around forgiveness and gratitude to the Pachamama for her fertility. The Inga and Kamëntsá peoples sing in their languages, accompanied by percussion and wind instruments, while visiting the Mocoa cabildos and other institutions, where the festivity is concentrated. This photo-essay focuses on this secular tradition, in its 2020 version, from a walk-through moments and scenarios in which the also called Carnival of Forgiveness takes place.
