You said your family is from Santa marta, is that a mostly afro colombian city or does it have alot of mestizos and whites too?
your fam might be castizos. i heard in caugus there's a lot of taino ancestry. santa marta is a unique mix of mestizos, whites, and afro colombians, so its a lot of diversity, but i'd have to say that mestizos are probably the majority. same with barranquilla.

lol ikr. not only funny but pretty accurate too. and hes just mad because i embrace my native american and white blood. i mean i KNOW its in me, what am i supposed to do? ignore it? i do consider myself black and apart of the afro colombian community but im also zamba and what he fails to realize is most of the people in the afro colombian community are triracials, mulattos and zambos.

Table s2 on this link shows you the level of ancestry of other interior Colombian cities.
PLoS Genetics: Geographic Patterns of Genome Admixture in Latin American Mestizos
Quote, Medellin 65% euro, 25% Native, 9% african
Cundinamarca(Bogota), Colombia 46% euro, 51% native,2% african


I love how your trying to argue with 2 people telling you otherwise, One being from Colombia who probably has the best idea out of all of us and Myself who has brought alot more evidence which is more accurate than what you posted.
cundinamarca's mestizos have more native blood than they do euro and their african blood is very very null. their bloodlines look almost like mexican mestizos except im pretty sure mexicans mestizos have more native in them (like 60%).
