Los Wayúu

Existe, en tierras áridas al norte de Colombia, un grupo de personas que dicen haber nacido de una piedra en la alta Guajira en Amúruru, hoy en día conocido como Nazareth, nombre que surge a partir del deseo de construir una casa como la de Maria y Jose. Otras pero de las mismas personas dicen haber nacido en las faldas de la Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, y por mal comportamiento fueron ubicados en la península norte de Colombia (frontera Venezolana).

Los Wayúu (hombre poderoso) son cazadores, guerreros y agricultores-agricultores-nómadas. Su pelo liso y flechudo hace rima con las espinas de los cactus, tunas, cardones y yotojoros, que decoran los paisajes horizontales, amarillos y secos del norte de Colombia.

In the arid lands north of Colombia, lives a group of people who claim to be born from a stone in alta Guajira (northern Guajira) in Amúruru, today known as Nazareth, a name that comes from the desire to build a house like Maria and Jose (the parents of Jesus Christ) . Others of the same tribe say they were born in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, but were forced to move to the northern peninsula of Colombia (Venezuelan border) because of their misbehaves with other tribes.

The Wayúu (mighty men) are hunters, warriors and nomadic farmers. Their hair is smooth and resemble and merge with the thorns of the cactus, prickly pear, cacti and yotojoros, decorating the flat, yellow and dry landscapes of northern Colombia.
