Formerly, each household was responsible for the education of their children. Parents formed their progeny in the ways of life in their territory, on their day-to-day living. Taitas guided and taught their communities during spiritual ceremonies.
At present, spiritual ceremonies still take place in Siona communities. However, the impacts of globalization and colonization have weakened traditional expressions by transforming cultural dynamics.
It is essential to conserve the elders' wisdom and practices by inspiring the younger generations to value and strengthen their cultural legacy.
