Crochet!
This plushie was lovingly handmade by Wayuu indigenous women. Their creativity, expertise and learning abilities are reflected in the quality of their handicrafts. A high-quality plushie is characterized by a tight weave and is created using three techniques: vertical weaving, "atulush" knotting and crocheting. With this project, Mama Tierra offers financial independence to indigenous women in La Guajira, an area between Colombia and Venezuela.

Inspired by Indigenous Totem Animals
When a Wayuu meets another Wayuu, they do not ask each other for their name but for their clan, this is how important the clans are. Each clan has an ancestral totem animal, which gives specific characteristics to the members of the clan it represents. For the Uriana clan is the tiger; for Jayariyú is the dog; for Ipuana is the hawk; Pushaina is the peccary; Epieyu is the cow; Ulewana, the cardinal bird; Gouliyu, the quail; Uraliyu, the rattlesnake; among many others.

Empowering Women
Mama Tierra offers pre-payments and working material to indigenous women, thereby strengthening their financial independence. The focus is on women because they ensure the well-being of the family, securing its income and educating the children.
