Indian Catalina is an indigenous woman from the Atlantic coast of Colombia. She accompanied Pedro de Heredia and acted as an interpreter and intermediary in the Spanish conquest of Colombia.
Catalina was kidnapped from the local settlement by the Spanish conquistador Diego de Nicuesa in 1509, where she was the daughter of the local chief. She was sent to Santo Domingo, where she learned Spanish and became a Catholic. Pedro asked her to act as a native American translator.
The Catalina Monument in India was carved by Eladio Gil Zambrana and was shown to the public in 1974.
