Being Opita

 

 

THE PRIDE OF BEING OPITA

Being an Opita is a pride for the Huilenses; it is to carry in our blood the San Juanero, the cultural and folkloric traditions that characterize us; it is to respect and value each place of our territory.

Being an Opita is also having resisted the onslaught of war, having bravely endured every attack, every kidnapping and terrifying act that put our progress on hold.

Being an Opita is a matter of passion but not of a geographical imposition, it is more than a month of parties, or a hat and a skirt with flowers, is to have the honor of knowing that this is a land of promise. Every place, river, landscape and cultivation evokes feelings of happiness. We are lucky to have from beautiful and fertile mountains and plains, to the wonderful Desert of the Tatacoa, from the warmest weather in Neiva to the coldest one in San Agustín.

To be an Opita is not to live on negative stereotypes of laziness, it is to make others understand that the mountains full of coffee and the Magdalena valley that produces the best rice are the result of the effort of peasant hands that get dirty every day with fertile land and work tirelessly to offer high quality products.

To be an Opita is to be able to say with the hand in the heart "I love my Huila", sing our hymn with great joy and know that each word identifies us, because we are humble, dreamy and hardworking people.
