The cross-culturation of indigenous and Afro-Colombian peoples is multidimensional. This is how, in the case of the gameranos, with a living language, they inscribed their dance traditions emulating irregular forms of nature despite the cultural imposition of an ideological project that arose from the link between religion and power and that sought to replace cultural identities through the superposition of one strange social structure on another. This research article explains how the Dance of the Conquest, the Son de Negros and the Guillermina solve integration problems by preserving the oral tradition, beliefs and myths that sustain dance codes in artists and collective imaginary. This is how rebellion and buff mask a kind of warrior code with figures that allow us to understand the set of knowledge of a people whose complexity is beyond being irreducible to historical-formal or systemic analysis. That is why the methodology used in this analysis focuses on the hermeneutical, semantic and symbolic study of the set of elements and knowledge that lie hidden in their songs and in the dance game.
