English Title: Wayuú, People of the Colombian Desert
The Wayuú ethnic group, one of the few in the entire American continent that successfully resisted European domination, today constitutes the majority population of the Colombian desert peninsula of La Guajira. There, in the middle of the sand and the heat, their rancherías are clearly visible, the name by which the settlements are known where the Wayuú have been grouping together in small societies, in search of ways of life safer than the original nomadism, but without lose its rich cultural tradition. This book by Santiago Harker, with an introductory text by Wayuú anthropologist Weildler Guerra, represents not only a passionate vision of the present but an amazing journey towards unthinkable landscapes and encounters. The masterful photographs illustrate rituals and customs, codes and festivals, attire and crafts.
