The Wayuu indigenous people have occupied the Guajira peninsula during centuries. They have a subsistence economy with grazing, artisanal fishing, handcrafts and seasonal agriculture depending on the rainy season. Their cultural obligations, like ritual payments, are an important part of the economic capacity of indigenous castes and families. According to their cosmovision, the spirit of the wind moves the clouds that fertilize the mountains with rain. In their holistic way of thinking, nature is intimately connected to the future of the human race.
