Yaracuyan chroniclers organize to preserve regional history

They consolidate partnership with which they seek to guarantee the adequate collection and safeguarding of local history

The newly formed Association of Chroniclers of the state of Yaracuy, this Monday, swore in its board of directors in the Legislative Council of the state of Yaracuy (Cley), within the framework of a solemn session for the Day of the Chronicler, an act in which its members committed to work for the rescue of local history in the 14 municipalities.

The president of the association and chronicler of the Cocorote municipality, Marcelino Salcedo, served as keynote speaker at the central event and stated that the state's chroniclers will implement a joint plan with the sole purpose of guaranteeing the compilation of the stories of each community.

He reported that, to date, there are official chroniclers in 10 of the 14 municipalities of the state, only those of Bolívar, Nirgua, Páez and Sucre need to be designated.

In this regard, Salcedo indicated that the Association of Chroniclers of the Yaracuy state is making the corresponding arrangements with the municipal chambers of the aforementioned jurisdictions to advance in the appointment of officials.

“We have had meetings with the municipalities that have not yet named their reporters. We have even brought them some model ordinances so that they can begin to work and form the corresponding evaluation boards to select those who will assume the responsibility of ensuring local history in their communities,” he pointed out. Salcedo.

The plan is to have an official chronicler in each municipality, to begin a joint work of compiling and storing all the stories, narratives and traditions that are recorded in each Yaracuyana community.

“Everything that is done in communities, of collective interest, must be jealously guarded so that future generations can know and learn from it. That is, precisely, our function: to collect all the information, organize it, publish it and save it properly so that it is always available to everyone,” he emphasized.

Articulation with chroniclers and communal cultists

Likewise, the president of the regional association of chroniclers highlighted that once the work begins in the municipalities, the chroniclers will contact their counterparts in the communities, peasant settlements and any sector where there is a person who loves to preserve collective stories.

To leverage the plan, popular chroniclers will be trained in each community to systematize the collection of data that serves to rescue and preserve the historical and cultural heritage of the municipalities.

All those people who can contribute knowledge, material, digital and physical records to the historical compilation of the identity of each community are invited.

 “The first objective that we have as an association is to appoint the missing chroniclers in the pending municipalities, to organize ourselves and advance a joint plan to rescue our local and communal traditions,” he concluded.
