A shaman from the Kamentsá tribe, wearing a colorful feather headgear, plays flute during the Carnival of Forgiveness, a traditional indigenous celebration in Sibundoy, Colombia, 12 February 2013. Clestrinye (“Carnaval del Perdón”) is a ritual ceremony kept for centuries in the Valley of Sibundoy in Putumayo (the Amazonian department of Colombia), a home to two closely allied indigenous groups, the Inga and Kamentsá. Although the festival has indigenous origins, the Catholic religion elements have been introduced and merged with the shamanistic tradition. Celebrating annually the collaboration, peace and unity between tribes, they believe that anyone who offended anyone may ask for forgiveness this day and all of them should grant pardons.
