FESTIVAL DE LA BALSA MANTEÑA

 

October

 

The idea of the festival of the Manteña Raft is born to represent our native culture, as a result of the 500 years of indigenous resistance, to remember history before the coming of the Spaniards to traverse of the Raft, the effort who put the Manteños and other tribes, the routes that made by Chile, Mexico, Peru and possibly Hawaii until mainly arriving at the empire from the Señorio Salangome, making the interchange of their products (exchanges) and demonstrating that these seas were intrepid sailors crossing.

During these 12 years, through the construction of the raft, it has been wanted to stage these experiences of the Cultures, the curiosity to live an adventure and to experiment I journey of this tool of transports by the written down places.

 

Tradition & History

         In the beginnings of the colony the denominated “raft” was used, boat constructed with raft wood (Och-blunt piramidales) that was rented by the Spaniards like means of transport between the different coastal towns. The sustained economic base in the fishing, has allowed that the towns located in the zones of influence of the Park, maintain their cultural principles stable; having to emphasize that their tradition, folklore and customs harmonize with their characteristic standard of life.
Puerto Lopez, Machalilla, Salango and Agua Blanca maintains conditions rural of traditional towns: the “peasant” of their houses, small shipyards for construction of boats, agricultural activities framed to extreme drought and the conducted fishing in artisan form, identify these populations, including their constant religious faith and the very particular form to celebrate their celebrations.
