Guarayo

Introduction

The Guarayo are one of Bolivia’s three main indigenous peoples, with a population estimated at about 20,000 people.

A branch of the Guarani people, the Guarayo belive that their land is a paridise, because of the beautiful varity of trees in the area. These trees include cedar, the sand box tree, big leaf mahogany, and the bibosi.

A number of other names have ben used to describe the Guarayo–from Araibayba and Carabere to Chiriguano, Guaraniete, Itatin, Moperequoa, Nyandeva, Oréva and Pirataguari.
