Indigenous people in Venezuela-the life of the Indian indigenous peoples of Venezuela: a cultural wealth of Venezuela, one of the most scenically varied countries of South America, is home to many cultural treasures. This includes the indigenous population. It has approximately a 2% share of the total population of the State. The Indians include not a single tribe, but divided into several different ethnic groups. Each ethnic group has its own customs and beliefs. The Yanomami in the Amazon, the Pemon in southeastern Venezuela, the Warao in the Orinoco Delta and the Wayuu in the North have the highest population of Maracaibo. The fascination of these indigenous peoples is their originality, which they have kept themselves in many areas. Caterpillar brings even more insight to the discussion.

A harmony with nature is aspired. Their own languages and customs have preserved them over the centuries, although the former colonial powers and some Venezuelan politicians wanted to do often dispute them in the past. Today are the Indians of Venezuela protected more by the State so that their valuable contribution to the culture of the country is not lost. Warao Indians who live in stilt houses in the Orinoco River Delta In Northeastern Venezuela, the Orinoco River Delta, which is famous for its dense evergreen vegetation is located. The many branches of the Orinoco are the home of the Warao Indians tribe. Estimates say that about the ethnic group has 30,000 people. They are spread over 250 small villages, which are covered by a distinctive wooden stilts.

This design is perfect for the marshy ground of this March area. Perhaps it is the natural space hard to wish with all its natural hazards or the tenacity of its inhabitants, but the Waraos could successfully resist any colonization. Some of them still don’t speak Spanish and live according to the old customs of their forefathers. The living is disputed with the production of everyday objects, as well as the hunting of animals.
