On the banks of the Amazon River, starting from the west towards Leticia is an Indian reservation called Puerto Nariño (Colombian Amazon), home of the cultures Tikuna - Cocama - Yagua, descendants of early settlers of the Amazon and South America. This young Tikuna is dressed in the costume of "mess" which they use for some of their sacred dances.

Location: Puerto Nariño - Amazonas
