1971 Peru

298. Peru 1971 – 10. Yagua People

Hello – Welcome to WDEOD, a site full of Doris’ photographs!

Its purpose is to share the shots she took in her 50+ years of travel. I’m trying to do a post a film – so one tour may have many posts.
To see what I’ve put up so far, use the menu (three lines up there ↑ if you are on a phone or tablet) to go to a place or a year.


According to Wiki, the Yagua people are an indigenous people who live in NE Peru / Columbia.As the first picture in the set is aerial, I guess the party flew up there from Puno.

There are about 6,000 Yagua today spread over a wide area of the Amazon basin. The language shows close contact with the Incas and many only speak Yagua, others are bilingual with Spanish.

Here is a demonstration of blowpipes. The Peruvian government allow then to use tourists for target practise, something no one told the guy in white.
