In this episode, we explore the celebration of the Corpus Christi in Atanquez, located within the Kankuamo Territory in the Departamento del Cesar in Colombia.

Atanquez or San Sebastian is a Colombian town and corregimiento of Valledupar in the Department of Cesar. Atanquez is located on the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountain range at approximately 2,000 m over sea level
