Amazonian indigenous people
in Colombia have lived in the rain forest for thousands of years, and their lifestyles and cultures are well-adapted to this environment. Like many Amazonian Indians today, there are western influences in their culture, but less so as you head south and particularly in the Amazonas Department.
The Amazonía Region of southern Colombia is comprised of the the following departments: Amazonas, Caquetá, Guainía, Putumayo, and Vaupés. The region covers an area of 403,000 km², which is 35% of Colombia's total territory.
