Indigenous people from different origin have transitioned to cities like Bogotá. One group stands out: the Emberá. On different locations in the city they sit on the ground making jewellery from bright coloured beads or produce a repetitive rhythmic sound with an object that looks like a grater. In 1992 the Banco de la República emitted a 10.000 pesos billet with a drawing of an Emberá woman.
