This chapter looks at the conceptualizations of Africa and Africans, as well as the link between Africa and Afro-Colombians and between Colombia and Afro-Colombians. It shows that this link has a history of rejecting Africa and forming a social order within Colombia. The Indigenous model, the referent to Blacks within Colombia, and the local definitions of ethnicity and race are also discussed. This chapter ends with a study on the different ethnic categories in Buenos Aires and the contrast between the Black and Indigenous communities.
