Este pueblo indígena es conocido por construir "palafitos",  hogares suspendidos sobre las aguas  para compensar los cambios de marea que vienen del mar del Caribe. Durante los años recientes conviven con la exploración petrolífera, el tráfico de drogas y la actividad turistica que se lleva a  cabo en la zona, en la que habitan desde hace por lo menos 8.000 años.

This ethnic group of the east of the country, that counted in 2001 with approximate 36.000 inhabitants, constructs their homes suspended on waters to compensate the changes of tide that come from the Caribbean sea. During the recent years they coexist with the petroliferous exploration, the drug traffic and the tourist activity that  are carried out in the zone, in which they have been living for at least 8,000 years.
