Intermediary between two worlds

El Cultrún sees itself as an intermediary between two worlds.
What does it mean “between two worlds”? We use this term in different contexts:

… the world of indigenous peoples and the world of
    non-indigenous
peoples
… the world of the Northern countries and the world of
    the Southern
countries
… the world of people with migration background and
    the world of the
local people
