Item description for Wayuu: Cultura del desierto colombiano by Santiago Harker...

As successful survivors of the destruction that fell upon most indigenous communities after the arrival of European conquerors to America, the Wayuu have been part of Colombia's identity for hundreds of years. Combining contemporary journalism and recent photographs, this book evokes the arid conditions of their home in the Colombian desert and their wisdom and traditions that continue into the present day.
Exitosos sobrevivientes del trgico destino que sobre la mayora de las culturas indgenas se cerni luego de la llegada del hombre europeo a Amrica, la etnia Wayu constituye desde hace cientos de aos uno de los principales paradigmas de la identidad cultural colombiana. Combinando el periodismo actual y la fotografa reciente, este libro es ms que una mirada puramente histricalogra develar este universo sobrenatural y sin par de los Wayu, logrando concretar as un libro en donde la sabidura del indio, heredero del desierto colombiano, se combina con la del nativo como individuo de una sociedad alienada.
