Comments

Chief Calarcá was a native American leader and war chief. This indigenous chief was the leader of the Pijaos Tribe, who lived in the actual Calarcá (municipality in the eastern part of the department of Quindío, Colombia). According to the legends, Chief Calarcá died in a fight with Baltazar Maldonado, an indigenous converted into the Catholicism, to keep the power of the territory, in a fight placed on Peñas Blancas, a characteristic mountain of the actual city of Calarcá.
