Inspired in indigenous mythology 
Birds play an important role in indigenous people’s myths. For example, the Wayuu believe that the earth was ruled by birds before humans inhabited the planet. Even today, birds represent some of the Wayuu clans. For example, the eagle stands for a mythical ancestor who emblematically marks the Ipuana clan as a totem.
