The representations related to religious festivities have been forbidden during the quarantine.
Other community practices such as Traditional Sports and Games are also restricted and we are waiting for the quarantine to be lifted. We have been having videoconferences to understand what the people are feeling in different places.
Some indigenous communities are still able to practice some activities because quarantine is not affecting their communities, but those are the fewer ones.
People are worried how this will impact the community economy and how we will get back on the regular activities concerning ICH elements.
Rather than a country action, what we are seeing are community-based actions of solidarity among inhabitants. In this sense ICH provides a common ground of understanding and an ethical frame of what is expected of each member of the community.
