Yagua Indigenous Community

The Yagua Indigenous Community is located at the border between Colombia and Peru, near the Brazilian port of Tabatinga. This community is notable because its members still use hooks, spears, and tridents in their fishing activities. They also use bows and arrows and blowguns to hunt monkeys, sloths, and capybaras to survive.
