Also available with the title in English: Wayuú, Peuple du Desert Colombian
The Wayuu ethnic group, one of the few that successfully resisted European domination on the entire American continent, 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 Wayuu 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 Wayuu anthropologist Weildler Guerra, represents not only a passionate vision of the present but also an amazing journey towards unexpected landscapes and encounters. The masterful photographs illustrate rituals and customs, codes and festivals, attire and crafts. The entire book constitutes a recognition and tribute to the richness and value of the Wayuu culture in the concert of the ancestral ethnic groups that inhabit the territory of Colombia.
