ECUADOR / TRAVELS

Street Art: The shout of outcasts in Cotacachi, Ecuador


I got to Cotacachi on Sunday noon easily from Quiroga main square (small city nearby) after visiting wonderful volcanic origin lagoon Cuicocha.

Cotacachi is famous for leather handmade products and many indigenous people who live there. Anyway this area- Imbabura Province- has one of the highest concentrations of indigenous people in the country of Ecuador.

As I walked through lonely streets, I found some interesting Cotacachi paintings, especialy the one which says “El grito de los excluídos” (The shout of socially-excluded people).
